I had a fantastic time up at Folkcraft Instruments for Dulcimer Boot Camp and the Indiana Dulcimer Festival.  When people come to these events in Woodburn, Indiana, they've come to expect high-level instruction; no fluff.  It means the students are eager and hungry for knowledge and are very intent to listen and apply what they learn.  It makes for a very enjoyable teaching experience that can also be a bit draining due to the high level of interaction and focus.  By the time I got home yesterday, I felt like I'd run a marathon.  Albeit a musical one.

ADT is here today upgrading our security system, so it's been a bit chaotic with the drilling and moving of objects so that the tech can gain access to certain areas.  But I've been catching up with some administrative work and am about to return to working on "All Songs Lead To The Gift Shop."  The latest track, "A Mile Of Stones", needs a few more supporting parts and then I'll be uploading the light mix probably later this week.  With a little less than two weeks before I depart for Texas, I'm feeling pretty positive that I can compose a few tunes, re-invent some older ones and maybe get this project into a rough form before I leave.  I know Dwain Wilder will be happy to hear that as there are some parties who are interested in the Concert Grand and would like to get their hands on it.  

If you need me, I'll be in the studio!
