This turned out to be a "beginner workshop" that I should have shown up on time for. Beginner is in quotes because while she wasn’t teaching raw basics, she was running the group through a basic tune that I might have been able to do if I’d been able to brush up on the fingerings before the weekend.
It was worthwhile anyway to see how she teaches and to listen to the cantankerous lady play.
"the next part goes… shh, SHHH"
Ask me about "There’s no F in bus"
I wonder how many people she’s told about the idiot she ran into Thursday night who asked her if she was here for the music or dance. I didn’t know what she looked like!
