Check out this testimonial from fellow Louisiana songwriter now signed to 3 Ring Circus Music, Blake Griffith, “I got all this and more from Jeffrey Steele’s Bootcamp. For me, this was a critical investment in my songwriting journey. In 9 weeks, Jeffrey and Casey equipped me with knowledge that would’ve taken me years to acquire. If you’re truly serious about songwriting I highly recommend this course. Go sharpen your pencil, grab a notepad, and get ready to THINK LIKE A WRITER.”
