"From the moment the Hacking Music sessions started I knew this was going to be something extra - killer ideas and approach from a great perspective, things I hadn’t heard in other training I’ve done. I really appreciated John’s style and how much he made it understandable. And, so much info I need to go over it a few times to get even a fraction of what was presented. Lots of excellent action items too.

I Highly recommend John Pisciotta and the Hacking Music training."
