Students Singing Praise for Level 1!

"Mike's teaching style makes it incredibly accessible for even non-musicians to progress.

The repertoire of chants taught is diverse, soul-inspiring, and beautiful, and Mike does a great job at helping students understand the meaning of the mantras.

I feel so blessed to have learned a new skill so quickly. I cannot wait to take another class!"

"I absolutely loved this course! Mike's teaching style is fantastic. He made learning each chant fun and easy to follow, even for those who have no musical background.

His experience, knowledge and personality added so much more depth to the experience. The optional weekly live zoom sessions, which were recorded if unable to attend, were an added bonus. Thank you Mike!"
