The following is a short excerpt from the E-Bass Line Newsletter from the International Society of Bassists. Receiving this newsletter each month is one of the many benefits for ISB members, including special rates on instrument insurance, the excellent journal Bass World, the paper edition of the Bass Line, and much more! Check out the International Society of Bassists website for more information on joining if you’re not a member–I’ve been a member since I was a teenager, and I highly recommend it for bassist of all ages.
Also, doublebassblog.org will be doing live coverage of next summers ISB convention at Penn State (June 8-13, 2009). That’s only 10 months away, and it will be a real blast, so be sure to join up with the ISB and check out this fabulous event!
Nico Abondolo and Timothy Eckert are pleased to announce that full tuition, room and board scholarships are available for the undergraduate double bass program at Azusa Pacific University. Additionally, full scholarships are available for the artist certificate program. Azusa Pacific is located in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. As a microcosm of global culture, the LA area serves as an extended classroom where students can experience and participate in its rich musical offerings. APU music students experience a unique blend of academic rigor, experiential learning, and personal support that sets them apart.
