"Jeff's process was fast-paced, fun and educational. It was highly interactive and it most certainly brought out the creative spirit in everyone. It was unlike any other team-building exercise that I've encountered. I would encourage any group wanting a unique and meaningful team-building experience to work with Jeff. It is time well spent."

Co-founder and Executive Director

"The last song I worked on with Jeff was a brilliant tune (his idea!) called "Sniff Every Tree." It was SO much fun putting that piece together. We've also worked on many events together, which is why I know...that when it comes to making an event successful, Jeff is a meeting planners dream! His first concern is always the audience experience. "Write A Song-Build A Team" workshops have been and will continue to be first class additions to any event."
Grammy Nominated Songwriter, Author, Professional Speaker
