I'm posting to let fellow 'Cafe members know that Boston area guitar/bouzouki player Matt Heaton is organizing "master classes" at his home in Medford, Ma. just minutes outside Boston. The first is scheduled for this Thursday, June 12.
The master class format consists of playing a set of tunes in front of other players with a melody player (Hopefully Matt's wife Shannon, a wonderful Irish flute player.). You can either pre-select a set or wing it on the fly (a jig in d mix and one in a minor, etc.) Matt will offer suggestions, insights and play some instructional videos. More details can be had by contacting Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org. Class is open to mandolin family instruments, guitar, harp, keyboard. If you play anything else, ask Matt if he thinks it will work.
I have no financial interest, but really want to see this take off. Matt is a great player and a wonderful teacher and opportunities like this are rare indeed.
I'm not certain how the mods feel about posting someone elses contact info like this (Matt knows I'm posting), but if it's an issue you can PM me and I'll forward your stuff to Matt.
Thanks for reading...hope to see some members there!
