My visit to Capital E was really great. I have many friends who produce music on their computers but I’ve never tried to do so myself. After this session however, I am definitely going to download Sony’s Acid when I get home. Overall great experience and a great teacher.

Really positive experience. The students were all engaged for the nearly two hour session and didn't want it to end.
