Customer Testimonials

  • "Your SonarWiz workshop in New Haven was outstanding. The Sound School served as an excellent venue for this type workshop. The time budgeted for the many topics covered was well planned. The opportunity to follow along with Mike and practice with this very powerful tool was enormously informative."
