Didn't really go into specifics
I would have loved to hear a detailed explanation on how to convey emotions through music.
Response from Customer Service:
Thanks for leaving us a review! We appreciate your time.
I'm very sorry you didn't like the webinar. As mentioned in the description, this was more about the commercial itself than the music. Sort of a peak at the more esoteric side of being a professional musician for hire.
Hopefully others will find it interesting and inspiring!
