For logistics and hotel contact Bob Hammond at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Players of all standard instruments in a plucked string ensemble / mandolin orchestra are welcome. If you feel nervous about whether you meet the technical level required, please talk to us about adapting music. Keith firmly believes it’s more enjoyable to play fewer notes but play them nicely. On the other hand, nobody should be afraid of being under-challenged. The workshop is a special opportunity for anybody, and especially so for classical guitarists seeking ensemble experience. The repertoire for the Charleston workshop will consist largely of compositions and arrangements by Keith himself, along with other music he particularly admires. All music has been carefully chosen not only because of its proven popular success, both with players and audiences, but especially because it naturally exemplifies many musical and technical aspects which Keith believes are worth examining.
Please feel free to contact Keith directly at email@example.com for any issues related to the workshop music.
