Mr. Chisum is an excellent coach, teacher and communicator.  He helped to clarify my goals and vision for my songwriting. His industry experience, bootcamp, and live critiques brought to light certain aspects of my writing that was holding me back from my best and now my writing is improving with each and every new song that I write.
