Today’s Target

​​What happens when the world gets in the way?

​Whether it’s a knock at the door … having to use the restroom … hearing “Places, please!” … backstage conversations, makeup adjustments, audition introductions and small talk …

How can we “do anything” in environments that pull us from permission?

​Today we’re introducing a tool to ensure we can always coexist with the world around us.

A powerful new teammate for your instrument that maintains limit-less imaginative possibility in any real world environment.

​A teammate for your Imaginative Practice.

​A teammate for your Personal Crafting Work.

​A teammate for your acting life ... The Veil.
