“Christopher Norton's presentation on the APP Series was not only informative but also exciting and inspiring.  The teachers of MTAC San Mateo branch had a great time.  We learnt new concepts and tricks, and we cannot wait to get our hands on the innovative APP materials!”

“Chris Norton’s music has an exquisite simplicity with a sophisticated touch, presented through humour and a magnificent timing. The seminar in Oslo had moments where the atmosphere in the room was magic, portraying a sense of inner and outer peace, of being connected to something great. What an inspiration!”
