“My plan is to have my outline done by the 15th of August to see if you think it’s ‘Porter approved’ ” – Britt H.

“Thank you for your informative, hands-on learning experience. You gave the framework for successful song writing in a well structured format. Your class is excellent for anyone looking for an efficient method for songwriting. Your enthusiasm for the subject is apparent and contagious as well. If it is not obvious by my commentary, your class receives my highest recommendation.” – Rick F.

“I think you are really one of a kind and a breath of fresh air in academics.” – Mimi H.

It was a great morning. I think those attendees will be better employees and people as a result. You did a great job!” – Chuck K. aka “The Kingfish”

“You have a teacher’s heart!” – Debra T.

“Last Saturday’s class was amazing.  I wish someone had videotaped it.” – Cecil S.

“It has been a great class.  I have learned a lot and it has enabled me to actually write the screenplay, eventually.  Without this class, I never would have gained the knowledge to do it.” – Steven Q.

Just wanted to thank you for presenting the workshop. I was looking for an overview of the basics and that’s what I got. Also took away some unfamiliar ‘food for thought’. Enjoyed the morning.” – Brent B.
