  • I found your show to be very informative Will. Going along with most everything already said, I felt like you could have slowed down your narration just a tad and done a better job timing up the slides with your narration. All-in-all though, nice job.

  • Vocally, your presentation is clear and pleasant and professional, but a bit speedy, which muddies the word, 'musician.' Content-wise, the range of education and salary are apparent, and you were wise to include the need for some musicians to have day jobs, too. We could probably use a bit more info on the variety of performance jobs that an instrumentalist might have, and for sure this program could use some more lively photos. Already, I see, you have a few comedians following your work. --DForeman
