Lead Trainer, Brad Lyons, releases new album

This is an exciting time. Five years in the making, one of our trainers, Brad Lyons, has released an amazing record, "Ten Steps." Many of you know that Brad used to be manager at the Apple Store. What you may not know is that Brad is one of Birmingham's most accomplished musicians. I describe his music as reflective, folksy, and story-full. "Ten Steps" ranges from rock to folk, from powerful to chill. One of Brad's main reasons for leaving Apple was to complete this album. (And The Mac Instructor now benefits from his help as a trainer as well!) If you're interested in giving "Ten Steps" a listen, you can pick up the album here. As you may have guessed, Brad is an expert of all things musical on the Mac, in addition to many other things. You can book an appointment with Brad here.
