Camp MMW: Learn from the Pros

Introducing Camp MMW

The first ever Camp MMW will take place in intimate setting of a beautiful Catskill Mountain resort. A select group of budding musicians will gather together for five days of intensive workshops and seminars, deep listening, musical exploration, and improvisation. No matter what instrument you play, you will expand your approach to music, improve your listening skills, and interact with other musicians in a completely fresh, innovative way. Think of it as musical cross training. You might be a guitarist, and study melody with keyboardist, John Medeski. Or a horn player that works on mastering rhythm with drummer, Billy Martin. Maybe you're a pianist that wants to develop your groove with bassist, Chris Wood. There will be special guests, group collaborations, and, of course, exclusive performances by Medeski Martin & Wood.

Camp MMW runs from Tuesday, August 5, to Sunday, August 10th, and is for musicians ages 16 and up.

I love their new children's album! Seriously! My nephew and I now have a CD we can agree on during car rides.

holy shit, this is the opportunity of a lifetime right here for us keyboardists. But now that I think about, can anyone even start to try to think on the same plane of the universe as Medeski, I mean the man is a freak of nature. This sounds like a lot of fun....

Honey, if you're readying this, I think I know what I want for my birthday......
