"Open Studio's rhythm section courses are focused, on-the-mark and very pragmatic. I'm able to ‘virtually’ experience well-trained and accomplished professionals explain, breakdown and demonstrate their craft."
Chris L. (USA)
"Open Studio is a gold mine. I'm learning so much with the All-Access Pass about all types of instruments, especially rhythm section. It's all been helping me on my main instrument and as a musician in general."
Cristian P. (USA)
