Hey Fiddle Hangout--
I wanted to let you know about the Chicago Fiddle Camp I'll be putting on this June. I've always wanted to do a camp, so I decided to go for it. The fantastic and talented Mike Block and Nick Gaudette will be teaching cello and bass, respectively. If you are considering attending at all, we really want to hear from you, so we can get and idea how many students we will have. I also want to make it possible for everyone who wants to attend, so we will be offering scholarships in exchange for some help with a few things we need to do.
