"Finally, a worthwhile way to earn Graduate Credits post Masters! I was often frustrated taking classes that had little to do with teaching choir, however, the classes here are GEARED towards working music educators. I feel as though I am at the National Convention with these All-Star educators teaching via video. I would recommend 100%! Fabulous investment!"
