A note from Ixi & Tiffany


Believe us... once you start to get a real handle on your foundations routine, you're going to feel so much stronger and more confident in your playing.

So often our students are like, “Why doesn’t my Weber sound good??!!” and it’s like, well, because you need to work on the mechanics of your articulation... 😬 Practicing more Weber won’t really help - you gotta get to the ROOT of the problem! This packet - and all of our resources - are going to help you do that.
