Inspiration in the form of happy exhaustion!
So, I'm back from Oberlin, stuffed full of great tunes from the Ohio Scottish Arts School. Its always a rugged treat to go there in the summer. Rugged because having that much fun is hard work - but I'm up for the challenge! In addition, its just worth looking forward to - old friends, new friends, seeing each other develop and grow as musicians. And the excellent teachers - role models all! I hope you'll consider participating next year - the diverse playing levels and styles, the brilliant faculty, the environment - all contribute to an excellent learning experience whether you've been playing for a year (like the first time I went) or for 30 years (like some of the participants) you'll have a wonderful time and learn more than you knew needed learning!
