Chela, thank you so much for participating.  I sure wish I could be there.
I would bring my horn and back you up.  Like Louis Armstrong used to say: 
"You play the melody and I'll play the obligations."

I am definitely looking forward to our third Summer Music Academy session at
the Enchanted Hills Camp this August.  If you know any blind or low vision
musicians age 16 to 24 who are serious about making music, encourage them to
apply to attend.  Once again this year, we'll focus on teaching music
literacy skills like reading, writing, and recording music.  We will also
form a chorus and apply those reading skills to performing.  Last summer, we
added what we call the Jam Track for people who want to focus on performing
and recording their music.

We have decided to add three more days to the week-long session this year so
we will have 10 days.  We'll spend the last few days in San Francisco
connecting with professionals and getting out to hear live music.

Check out the following page for more info and how to apply.

Summer Music Academy Director

I've been invited to play at a local music club in Martinez California
called Armandos if anyone has ever heard of the 21 and older age venu.
I'll be playing "Misty," Home," by Philip Philips, and an original pop tune
from a neighbor guitarist called "You Got This," which he actually wrote for
It is an event that takes place from 1:00PMPST-4:00PMPST April 3rd.
It is a fundraiser to help blind music students ages 14-24 attend the Music
Academy for the Blind at Napa California's Enchanted Hills Camp.
People have been asked to donate $20 at the door.
This is an exciting opportunity for those to learn what I'm learning now,
minus the fact I've not had any experience to utilize the caketalking sonar
studio software, but I'm very delighted to support those who have that
chance to learn braille music reading and writing and composing and
recording which I didn't have that opportunity myself. 
I'm just learning braille music myself on my own. That is why I also asked
for that braille file you had mentioned in a prior message.
Anyway, wish me well even though I'm sure it will be a great success!
