    I would like to comment on the songwriting webinar. It was very informative and affordable. It was straight to the point, honest, and eye opening. The fact that you can go back and watch it again at your convenience is the icing on the cake. I learned more in that webinar than I've learned ever as it pertains to songwriting. There was such valuable insight and knowledge coming DIRECTLY from an industry professional with a proven track record and resume that speaks for itself. You can't ask for more than that. Thank you, Antea!
