Mark O'Connor discussion panel!
First day of Mark O'Connor camp. Really glad to be taking it again! Took a class by David Wallace on the structure and style of the blues, then one with Jeremy Kuel on practicing techniques for improvising, then took a Gypsy 101 class by Kelley Hall Tompkins in which we learned the Czardas Gypsy Dance! That was really fun. Then I sat in on the Mark O'Connor discussion panel in which they talked about competition and how to maintain a big ego! Went to dinner and then went to a jam session faculty concert! Really fun first day!
