"I developed this program as something I wish I had access to many years ago, I completed a full time 2 year diploma and I still felt that my music was nowhere near where it needed to be. I embarked on a 9 year journey of personal development, research & learning. I attended seminars & learned from experienced engineers. Through this course, I am sharing my journey as an artist."
- Will Kinsella, Techno Artist & Founder, Elevator Program
"Will taught me early on in my career and helped me lay the foundations to what my sound is today. He is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to music production and has a talent in being able to explain and break things down to even the more novice producer"
- Mark Greene, Techno Artist, Intec Digital
