2013 Workshops

I did a number of Tap & Blues Workshops with Stefanie Weber.

Here is one we did for students at Monument High School in December:

It was a great year for library concerts and workshops.

I loved the appreciative audiences!

After-School Uke Building at Monument Mountain Middle School 2013

What an amazing time we had. We built ukeleles from kits (check out www.wolfelele.com)
learned to play them,and then gave two concerts--one for the folks at Devonshire Estates, and one for family and friends..

The ukes came in kits. We glued them together and then sanded them.
Then we stained them, glued some decorations on, and started painting and decorating....
   
MA Teacher's Association Workshop For Guitars In The Classroom
This year I was priviledged to teach a two-day workshop for teachers that wanted to learn how to play guitar
and integrate music into their classroom curriculum.
GITC donated guitars, straps, gig bags and strings. It was an awesome class!
   
Guitar Lessons and Chorus Class
Although I don't have any pictures, I had a great time teaching an after-school chorus class
and private guitar lessons in 2013. Fun!
   
Rock On BandCamp 2013
