We also hope that you shared some guitar music as well–perhaps “Carol of the Bells” for those involved in the November workshop last year. The early bird deadline for the March workshop was originally set for January 16th, but we have decided to extend the deadline until February 1st at midnight. Remember that if you register early, you help YGW faculty plan level-appropriate repertoire while saving a little money for yourselves. The team has been working hard to plan a fun, educational, and encouraging workshop and we hope to see you there!
