I always love how Barry Green (a former Contrabass Conversations guest, bass teacher, and author of the Inner Game of Music and other books) imaginatively uses new technologies and ideas in his teaching and performing. Fromm jazzing up the Bach cello suites and exploring the psychological side of music performance to starting an arts blogging network, he’s always pushing the envelope in a fresh and interesting way.
Barry has asked several bassists from around the world (and he graciously included me in this lineup!) to present virtual master classes for this summer’s Golden Gate Bass Camp. I’ll be connecting with the folks participating in the 15th year of this great camp on Friday afternoon, and I’ll be sure to write about this experience. What a great way to incorporate different perspectives into a summer experience!
