"I dare anyone to listen to this and NOT pre-order the CD... you just can't do it... it is just that damn good... you think I'm kidding, but you don't even know..." (from Kate W., Philadelphia, PA USA)
"Intriguing and refreshing ... Take a listen. It will take you to far away places." (from Cesar C., Quito, Ecuador)
"Recorded at Fleisher Art Memorial for its cavernous sounds and real-life reverb. Check it out, especially if you're a fan of sick-as-hell percussive acoustic guitar a la Andy McKee, Trevor Gordon Hall, Antoine Dufour, Leo Kottke and early Ani DiFranco." (from Dan D, Philadelphia, PA USA)
"This 'Audidactic Pedagogy' thing is fruckin nuts," (from Zia H, Washington DC USA)
"Sounds amazing!" (from Nicole K., Media, PA USA)
