"The Viss/Sowash partnership works well. Leila's hints and tips are for immediate use with students, clear and accessible, Bradley's is more about my own education and beyond. Awesome skill, clear explanations. Learnt heaps about what I’d been guessing for years.”
“ ...worth the time and money, and I'm really glad to have made new friends and connections ...being in a room with so many like minded people sharing ideas and putting things I'd read into practice. Picking the brains of those who are doing things I want to do is priceless.” -Sharon H, Virginia
“I am sure my family is very tired of hearing about it!! ...so respectful of learning styles and making room for mistakes without ridicule. At my age the temptation arises to just do what I have always done, but I am proud of myself for trying to keep up with the changing times and to stay relevant. You all are making it much easier.” -Louann F, California
“Lots of information ...It was really nice to feel comfortable and not be afraid to ask a question or make a comment. I'm very glad I attended and I am already reaping the benefits in my confidence and my new toolbox of ideas.” -Jolene T, Idaho
“... an amazing workshop full of creative ideas. I appreciate the openness of teachers sharing their tips and failures so that other teachers can be better at what they do.” -Amy W, Colorado

“It brings tears to my eyes ...the first time in 25 years of teaching piano that I felt like I "fit" with other musicians. Thank you ...for sharing your expertise with us but for also affirming our experiences as fellow musicians. My belief is that there's more than one way to make music and when we collaborate together what a beautiful sound we offer the world.” -MaryAnn B - Minnesota
“...I am encouraged as a teacher and look forward to guiding my students more purposefully in creating music of their own at the piano.” -Laurie S
“ ...continually providing us teachers with wonderful and inspiring ideas ...Thanks to the last great class about composing I decided to take the plunge and have all of my students working on their own compositions ...they were all pretty psyched I think! I feel I’m wading into some definitely unfamiliar waters ...but it’s great”. - Karen J, Colorado
"Bradley and Leila give clear direction in the workshop without making the classically trained teacher feel like we somehow missed the boat. Instead of walking away from a workshop on improvisation frustrated, I left ready to meet the challenge. I hope you are able to attend one of Leila and Bradley’s workshops. It is certainly worth the time and expense." –Jodie
"...It's definitely going to revolutionize my teaching style and it opens a door to a whole new world of music and a new way of looking at and teaching music theory and history."
