STUDENT COMMENTS:
Dear Maestro Hector,
I am most grateful that I was accepted into your phenomenal Master Class. I was intimidated at first, but after meeting you and your lovely wife Lieve my fears evaporated.

My bashfulness left me the second I played the first note, with you concentrating on every chord, voice, my arrangement and expression.

Your critique of my playing will forever be in my soul and I will practice and strive to achieve all that you helped me with.
I look forward to your next Master Class and for you to see an improvement in my playing. 
Thank you Hector and Lieve for your generous hospitality.
It was an honor to play for you, Our Maestro.

Hi Hector and Lieve,
I wanted to say ‘Thank you’ for another wonderful Master Class.
While I don’t own a Rodgers or latest ‘Roland’, I always find the material you present
both interesting and educational.
One doesn’t need to own a specific instrument to benefit tremendously from your presentations.
They are inspirational!
Thank you again!

Thank you, Maestro for a magnificent Master Class. 
It was a totally enlightening experience, indeed.
I have learned a thing or two over the years, but this tripled my knowledge. Easily!
The class opened new doors, it was an incredible 2 days!
