New course Launched

I recently launched a new video course "First Song with Band-in-a-Box for Windows". If you are already a Band-in-a-Box user but are struggling to get started, or even if you are an intermediate user, you can benefit from this course. For only $10 you get unlimited access to the course. Forever or as long as the server is available, whichever comes first :)
