What a great time I had in Columbus, Indiana at your clinic. The opportunity to listen to your clinic and then actually play with Zack was such a fun and excellent learning experience. I really appreciate your style of teaching and the way you make the “3 and a pro” an enjoyable learning environment. – Charlie Day

Over 40 CPC members participated in 3 different levels: novice, intermediate, and “3 and a pro”. The information shared was clear and concise, just the right amount to digest, and now work on. Each session was 90 minutes in length, with Q and A following. Rocket and Zack were enthusiastic and gave each participant some individual instruction. We could not have been more pleased, overwhelmingly positive responses from the CPC member who participated. We would highly recommend them for clinics or training that your group would be planning. – Brad Gonsalves, President, CPC – Nancy Conner, Secretary, CPC
