The dictates of economic necessity


The commercial rationale behind

the one-day seminar I'll be

conducting in Copenhagen is that,


even if one is based in somewhere

like Seattle, they can still easily fund

the inspirational dream that we


provide, to produce high quality

children who are affordable & able

to sing better than they can speak.
