Mike and I just returned from China where we had an INCREDIBLE time at Youth Music Culture Guangzhou. I had a lot of fun teaching Brenda Stubbert's Reel to a bunch of Chinese musicians... I even got a few of them to learn the basic reel step. We had a great time with our fellow teachers, including Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer. Especially thrilling for me was getting to perform my tune Leila's Birthday with Edgar and Mike. OTHER HIGHLIGHTS include dumplings, karaoke, and 70 degree weather in January. I miss it ALREADY.
