Playground Sessions is ideal for people who would love to play a musical instrument but never thought that they could. This program will unlock the door to this vast market, a market that is far larger than the present population of active music makers.

Playground Sessions makes learning intuitive and not punitive, and brings about the joy of participating in music-playing without the agony of decades-old traditional approaches. I invested in Playground because I believe creativity is in short supply and this product can inspire millions to discover their creative soul through music participation.
