"I wanted to write and thank you for such a great weekend and such a fascinating course. I was enthralled by the entire concept and approach. You also really gave me something that I needed at that moment and I'm grateful. My season of marathon singing began last weekend and I had a chance to put what I had learned to some very practical use. And it worked beautifully. I'm finding all sorts of new places and colours and choices. And the public reaction was immediate to what I was doing! Yow!"
