- "Hi Tony - Just to say thought the courses were brilliant and Marco was very helpful, he was probably sick of all my questions but hid it well. Thank you for all your help!"
- "This is just a quick email to say a huge thank you for the excellent Music Tech Crash Course that I attended on Sat 11 Oct. In my opinion, the course did exactly what it said on the tin (as they say!). The course has inspired me to take my sound recording further and in time take some more training. What was really refreshing too, was that diversity of students, from a wide variety of backgrounds, but all coming together to share a passion for furthering their knowledge of music and sound production. This created an informal but creative atmosphere for learning."
