“Becker and Bianculli have techniques that are beyond reproach. They eschew bright colors and a brash performance style, and they seem most comfortable with being mellow and quietly insinuating”.

Thank you for spending some valuable time with our students today. I know they have all taken away a wealth of both stylistic and technical advice from your master class with them. When speaking with the students after the session, they were thrilled with the time they had been able to spend with you and some even commented “we wish we had a little longer”.
