Jeff Jetton Posted March 27, 2014 Share Posted March 27, 2014 I see a lot here and elsewhere about concertina workshops (Noel Hill, etc.) that look interesting. And I had previously thought about attending some of the various workshop opportunities for other instruments I play (Django Camp, etc.) But in the end, I'm just not so sure what I'd get out of them. Isn't a week--or even an intensive weekend--simply a lot of material to process in a very short amount of time? Seems like it would be, to quote one my old instructors, "like drinking from a firehose". For all that time, money, and effort, and in the end, how much really "sticks"? I can't help but feel that I'd be better off spending the same amount on something like a series of private lessons over a longer course of time, with "space" in between to process/practice the things I learn and integrate them a bit into my playing. Sometimes you've got to let the concrete set before you build the next floor on top of it, ya know. So what are the experiences and general thoughts of those who go to these various workshops? I'm sure they're a lot of fun. But do they tend to be worth it from an instructional standpoint? How much do you really take back home with you? Thanks!
