Jon Gindick's Jam CampHere is another 2 cents!  I attended Jon's DC camp =
also with  the same reservations...having played for 30 years and =
thinking myself also on that same level.  The camp was a great musical =
experience with attendees ranging from beginners to some fine pros =
(Howard is an excellent player).=20

I can safely say that  everyone learned a lot and moreover had  a great =
time.  Jon had me put together several songs to sing and play with the =
full blues band on the last day. Jon's feedback was =
invaluable.......What a confidence builder for me!!!!!!  We were all =
cheering each other on! =20

It is a great experience being around people who are totally positive =
and totally into the harp!!!!  These next camps look like they could  be =
even better! So if anyone is considering going,  I think that you will =
have a great time if you do!

  Subject: Jon Gindick's Jam Camp

  I've posted elsewhere about Jon's camp but wanted to say if you're on =
the fence about attending one of the upcoming camps, go. I attended the =
recent jam camp in Rockville with some reservations; I consider myself =
an intermediate-on-the-verge-of-the-next level and the camp seemed to =
focus on beginners. There is that, but I found myself with ample =
opportunities to play and learn from some first-rate teachers (Jon =
Gindick of course and also Larry Iceman Eisenberg & Allen =
Radcliffe-Holmes, in my case). Jon cultivates a supportive & warm =
environment to play in, and the comradery & the response I got to my own =
playing was very gratifying.=20

  In the scheme of things, I'd love to go back to the Augusta Heritage =
Center during Blues Week there, and that would be my first choice. But =
the last time I attended Augusta was twelve years ago; since then I =
haven't been able to create the time & space to attend again. Spending =
three days cultivating my Inner DownChild at Jon's camp was a peak =
harmonica experience and I'm glad I went.

  My two cents, YMMV, usual disclaimers apply. Howard Parks=20
