“As the guest musician at the 2013 SE Regional Y.O.U. retreat…Glen was in every activity…The kids fell in love with him because he is so genuine… When you’re the kind of person that gives yourself to your art I think, by necessity, you have to be the kind of person that shares your heart…you see that in Glen.” ~ Dieter Randolph, Y.O.U.

  • GuitarchestraSM
    Guitarchestra is an exploration of group performance, team- and attention-building, creativity, and production values. Strap in while we learn new skills and use existing skills to create a guitar symphony arrangement of a new, original composition which can be performed in concert, or for a school or camp show. Be a “first chair” performer, or conduct the GuitarchestraSM — either way, plan to have fun, laugh and learn. For all skill levels, and any instrument at all.
  • Playing Well With Others (You KNOW You Want To)SM
    Somewhere along the musical landscape ranging from mountain music to Steely Dan lies the key to the graceful magic that is “tasty” performance. Whether in a well-played solo, or in the larger context of musicians playing together – even supporting a vocalist – there are learnable skills to help us do it better. Time and experience are great teachers, but in this class we aim to crack the code and unlock shortcuts to help us play well with others….today! Improve your live performance skills and avoid collisions, pile-ups, sand in your face, bruised feelings and smashed instruments. All instruments; all skill levels.
