I got the opportunity this past Friday to participate as a clinician in a Skype master class for the Golden Gate Bass Camp in San Francisco. I was the fourth of five master classes, and the line-up was as follows:
TUESDAY: July 20th: 4:00 p.m. (check in 3:00 p.m.) Sonia Ray: Brazil
WEDNESDAY: July 21st: 1:30 (check in 1:00 p.m.) Diana Gannett: Michigan
THURSDAY: July 22st: 1:30 p.m. (check in 1:00) Lu Yuan: China
FRIDAY : July 23rd 2:00 p.m. (check in 1:00) Jason Heath: Chicago
SATURDAY: July 24th 11:30 a.m. (check in 11:00) Michael Klinghofer: Israel
What a cool idea to incorporate this into a bass camp! We did some live blogging and virtual master classes for the 2009 International Society of Bassists Convention, but if the ambition of these sessions is any indicator, we’ll be having a whole lot more of this at the 2011 convention in San Francisco.
The Golden Gate Bass Camp is a very cool event, and if you’d like to learn more about it (or about Barry Green, the director for the camp), check out the interview with Barry Green that I did for Contrabass Conversations earlier this year. While you’re at it, check out this mini-episode with Barry covering some details about the 2011 ISB convention.
