Mitch's Master Classes have evolved over the years into the most comprehensive study in the world today. The main difference between this course of study and the others, is a total commitment to Singing Bowls. Not a part time study that incorporates other instruments mixed in, expressing a modality that incorporates Singing Bowls, but a 90 hour syllabus completely focused on Singing Bowls. Most Singing Bowl training programs are simply a version of a so called sound healing class. What can you possibly learn in an environment like that, where the Singing Bowl is just one element?
