Mike Klinger is a great online instructor. I have taken courses from him at his facility, and was curious to see how well his instructional style translated to online learning. Bottom line: Mike did a great job. Pro Tools is software with a steep learning curve, that he made easier with his sequential steps, building confidence right along with content knowledge in the learner (me! As a teacher myself, I can really appreciate this). I am getting a lot more use of my recording set-up, and am much more efficient with it, thanks to this class. Thanks Mike! Looking forward to my next class!

Wow - it's clear I've learned a lot in this course, judging by how quickly this went. Anyone know how to add system breaks (those little things that look like percussion roll marks) and page numbers at the bottom of the page?
