The Nail Three Genres Class was engaging start to finish. We spent so much time on our feet and reviewing tape, it was the most collaborative class I've taken. Matt Miller s unbelievably encouraging and had a genuine investment in every single person in the class.

Matt is a true pro that brings a ton of knowledge and experience to a really fun, helpful class. I truly appreciated the opportunity to work multiple auditions, both in class and self tape, using several different genres of material. I can't recommend this class enough.

I think [what] was beneficial to the class is that he treated it like an audition. All assignments were greatly appreciated for all genres! (Matt Miller - Instructor, Nail Three Genres Workshop)
