Thank you so much for the wonderful article. I thought it was beautifully written and I absolutely loved it! It was so nice chatting with you last week. Thanks also for making the interview such a pleasant experience.
I am looking forward to reading more of your articles in future and hope to see you at a concert sometime next season.

Associate Principal Cellist, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
Excellent review of Ethos Collective’s concert last week by the always-insightful Jason Hall in The Vancouver Observer.
—Stefan Hintersteininger, Canadian Music Centre
Jason is an incredibly thoughtful and detail-oriented writer and communicator. I’ve worked with him for a few years and have found that not only is his work impressive but he’s a great person to have on a team. His strengths are not just in writing but in public speaking as well. At a recent editorial meeting, he gave a really inspiring speech about writing and putting soul into a story. It was very powerful and moving.

Spot-on analysis of my piece (last Friday’s Colin MacDonald Pocket Orchestra concert) in this review!
—Stefan Hintersteininger, composer
I personally enjoyed today’s blog post, Jason. Makes it so much fun to promote! Well done. And I loved learning about the background of a Webtech Wireless employee. You just never know what people do when they aren’t at work! 🙂 I appreciate the personal touches you’ve been using on the blog recently.

The timing was impeccable for this well-written article. I used it at my meeting—and it generated a lot of questions. Great Work Jason.

“My thoughts on your playing were that it was animated and seemed to move in time to the natural rhythms of the human body. I envisioned the cadence of people walking in procession and the dance like curves of people moving against gravity and characters. This kind of phrasing relates to breathing rather than the metronome. I see someone running full out in tall grass. Everything became visual to me. Beautiful playing Jason!”

Jason’s Writing for the Web course was fresh, broad, and instantly beneficial. Thanks to the social media, blogging, SEO, and marketing techniques I acquired in his course, I was hired as a coordinated web content coordinator for Live to Play Sports (formerly Norco Products Ltd.). My manager counts on me to build a business-to-business and business-to-consumer online presence for the re-launched company, and I have Jason to thank for the Web skills I now use everyday.
—Ulrike Rodrigues, Integrated Web Content Coordinator and Brands Liaison at Live to Play Sports (formerly Norco Products)
The article is so well-written, thoughtful and I cannot begin to tell you how much we appreciate your attention. For a locally owned and operated establishment like ours, people like you help make a difference.

“You all are really going above and beyond on the blog posts! Jason, really enjoyed your post today about Ottawa and I LOVED the picture. In my experience, people are more apt to click through a link with a fun picture – so well done. Thanks for making my job easier (and more fun)!”
