The 2012 NorthEast Stick Seminar June 23-24
I am pleased to announce “The 2012 NorthEast Stick® Seminar”.
This will be held in Hamden, Connecticut at “The Outer Space” Saturday and Sunday, June 23 and 24.
Instructors will be Greg Howard and Michael Bernier with some additional instruction by Brett Bottomley.
All skill levels are welcome. If you don't have a Stick, a limited number of instruments will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Instruction will cover a broad range of subjects, including basic technique, instrument setup, fretboard navigation, chord chemistry, etc.
Greg is one of the most experienced teachers of Emmett Chapman's Free Hands method anywhere, having taught over 50 seminars and hundreds of private students all over North America, Europe and Japan. He's also written two Stick method books and recently published a DVD of physical technique lessons. Michael's innovative approach to The Stick has expanded the instrument's technique vocabulary immensely, and inspired Tony Levin to launch the Stick Men trio together with Michael and drummer Pat Mastelotto.
There will be a meet and greet on Friday night – venue to be announced.
