Video chat and more!

Greetings!  It’s been a while since my last post but things are really going great here at PlaySteelDrums.com.  We continue to add more members and I’m figuring out more ways to help you in your musical journey.  I need to let you know that there are big things on the horizon for us.  

 

We hosted our first ever live Skype video chat on Wednesday, October 10.  This was a members only event and we had people from NY, OH, and TX join in for the fun.  I feel like I was really able to help people with this kind of live, personal attention.  This was just a test run and since it went so well we will be doing it again soon!  Stay tuned for more info!

 

Also, I’ll be going to the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) in Austin the first week of November.  It is a wonderful event with over 7,000 attendees from all over the US and in fact, the whole world!  If you are in the area you should certainly try to attend, if even for just one day.

 

The convention consists of concerts, clinics and masterclasses all day long.  The hard part is choosing which event to go to.  For example, on Friday at 2:00 I must choose between a Michael Burritt Showcase Concert or a Marko Marcinko Drumset Master Class.  A tough choice indeed!!

 

Even a month away I can tell what the highlight of the entire week will be.  The Thursday night concert features Andy Narell with the Relator!!!  Also on the concert will be the University of North Texas Steel Band, University of North Texas Jazz Band and the McCallum High School Steel Band.  Oh my!  This is going to be amazing!!!  

 

I’ll be sure to let you know how PASIC goes.  Hope to see some of you there!
