Fun at the ASTA Conference in Atlanta!

I took a giant step by attending the American String Teacher’s Association  conference in Atlanta last week. I learned so much at the various workshops. Most amazing was to learn about the latissimus dorsi muscles and their role in supporting the instrument and the bow, at a class called “Body Mapping.”

I also reconnected with Christopher Smith, a student of mine in Omaha almost 30 years ago.  He and I became great friends and I’ll be doing a workshop for him in Nebraska next year. Two workshops actually. An intonation class with my cousin Paul Lindsay, who is getting the world’s first doctorate in intonation from George Mason University. And a workshop on See Saw Swings.

I distributed hundreds of See Saw Swings flyers and more than 40 free books. My intention is to prime the pump! Dr. Alice Lindsay, my Aunt, was in attendance and told me that everyone she spoke to liked See Saw Swings.
