"I truly believe that the 9 Doors program is a paradigm shifting way of exploring and thinking about music. What Corrie has created is on the leading edge and steps us into new ways of thinking, feeling and approaching learning, music and even life. Corrie's ability to synthesise years worth of study and insight into these 9 core areas goes way beyond a neat system of categorising music and is more like entering a world of possibility."
