Well, I will have to give some sort of short workshop at the WVC (World Vibes Congress) this year. I was going to take notes and keep a diary on my computer and thought I would do it here. So I'll blog here and you guys can give me your two cents.
IN PROGRESS, PUTTING THIS TOGETHER FOR NEXT SATURDAY
On Saturday we will link to all the videos for the second portion of the Day of Percussion on this page. Some players are playing live from 12-2. Others are submitting video which i will link to here.
Questions? Thoughts? What did you think? Let's talk about his book, here.
I have some things to say but I'll wait. How about some of you start. Gary will check in to answer questions and comment (I'm pretty sure).
The first person who can post a good version of any two of these four etudes receives a free 30 minute lesson with me (Behn). Please see the video for more details and the etudes are attached. Hope to see some folks posting!
