show us a weekly schedule? Whats happening which day because i am coming up for a day and i need to know which one

well david is coming the last 3 days.

but i haven't planned too much else except i'm going to try and have a guest each night and also try and get behn and pinto down for a master class.

on the thursday we'll probably have an open house in the afternoon and a vibe/xylo hang (bob becker is across in the next building, doing xylo stuff)

the workshop is really designed for the 6 days. it's fine and GREAT if you come for a day. if so, i could plan on the thursday or friday when friedman is there.

I do know that we work our asses off for 6 days. Last year these guys were playing all day and all night!

i will certainly come up thursday or friday when freidmen is there. All day for six weeks is really intense!

count me in!
Don't over plan
Keep it simple

This sounds awesome! Are there still openings? Is there a way to have it count for college credit?

Are you in high school or college?

If college you couldncheck with your college. Otherwise the least I could do is getbsome type of certificate.

I am a high school teacher looking to possibly get some continuing education credits. As a workshop, I think it will count (the certificate would be helpful), but will have to check with admin before registering. Hopefully will work out so I can go! :)


This is offered through the univ of del. I'll check with them also.

Hey are there still openings for this workshop? If there are I will register for this right now! The Malletech Vibes Congress got cancelled so I'm scrambling for a new workshop!

I think so. You can register there: :o)
Tony? Can you confirm?

there are still openings!

Is this primarily for advanced players or all levels?

Any skill level is fine, you should come!

I would imagine you will have a variety of vibes on hand. Do you think that we'd have opportunities to try out different ones, for example, the Malletech Omega and Love vibes?

Yes, both those instruments will be available!

I've stumbled across a few different links for this workshop, and it looks like there is at least one other page about it on the site. The other one has a different guest artist list and a different description. Just wondering, which one is the most up-to-date?
