Hello! During this moment of crisis, some musicians are suffering terribly. I'm lucky that DCMS is still keeping me alive, but some who are hardest hit are those in the Sinti community. I know of some facing homelessness because all they ever did was gig. Some of these players had lots of gigs, that they suddenly lost.
Some reached out to me and told me they wanted to do some teaching. I tried to encourage them to do it on their own but they really wanted to do it with me, so I thought about hosting online workshops. This will be done privately on my Youtube channel. I will translate, and explain anything that needs to explain, and people can type their questions.
The first artist will be Benji Winterstein. He is the nephew of Hono and is one of the biggest talents of the new generation. He's played with many of the greats and is always seen accompanying people in his hometown: Samson Schmitt, Amati Schmitt, Brady Winterstein, Dorado Schmitt, Mayo Hubert, etc...
I'm new to this technology so there may be some issues. For this first one, we'll make it officially one hour, but because unforeseen circumstances may happen, we will of course extend the time if needed.
If anyone is interested, you can email me at misterdmmc AT G M A I L. C O M
please prepare questions in advance, and i'll try to do my best to go through most if not all of them or do my best to make it run smoothly
Since it's live you can also ask live questions if we don't have enough. I can also take the lead and ask questions
I will translate, and if needed, I will also explain things if he 's going too fast..
This will be all done privately through my Youtube channel. and after the workshop, you can still access the video with your private link. Furthermore, if need be, I will also transcribe relevant examples on Soundslice.
If this works well, I can organize other workshops as well with big artists in the Sinti community (or outside). Rocky Gresset will probably be the next one!
