It takes a village to train a 21st Century musician! In September, I was honored to be one of eight Talk 21 speakers at the 21CMPosium hosted by DePauw University. Learn how the Berklee String Department cultivates musicians within a creative community. #BecomeVillagePeople  #ItTakesAVillage

All of you improvising string players out there probably own a copy of Matt Glaser's classic 1981 book "Jazz Violin." [If not, RUN! GET IT! ] Pages 38-45 contain a detailed analysis of six jazz violinists' take on 12-bar blues with 2 transcribed choruses from Eddie South, Joe Venuti, Stephane Grappelli, Stuff Smith, Svend Asmussen, and Jean Luc Ponty. This playlist contains the original recordings for those transcriptions and analysis. Enjoy!

FUN! Bob Dylan meets viola folk-punk & Cajun cello! (With polyrhythms, a parody of lip-sync'd instrumental solos, and a few tricks pilfered from Bach & Schubert). Transcribers of viola solos can find one at 1:15. Performed live at MWROC festival 2015.
