There are a LOT of classes to choose from, and you deserve the best.

What you get here is the real deal.  Enough structure to show you exactly how to craft an idea to perfection, but enough insight and flexibility to allow you to become the unique talent you are.  You’ll be in a solidly safe environment, but you’ll hear the truth, so that when you hit the stage, you’ll be more than ready.  Contrary to what others might say…
