Working with Mike Klinger at the workshop was an inspiring experience. I learned more in a week than I thought possible. Mike gave clear and thorough explanations and suggestions for practical applications of music software that will enrich my teaching for years to come. The natural beauty of the area and the warm hospitality of the Klingers made me feel completely welcome.
