- Eien online and then July 17-29
- David Wells, need recording of ipponzuki
Eien will next be in Los Angeles July 18-29. Should we schedule a kane lesson with him?
option 1) private lessons for Jess and Toshi $150/hour ($75/person)
option 2) whole group lesson during class on July 19 ($400)
option 3) public workshop on Sat July 23 or Sun July 24 ($50/person?)
I guess my vote would be option 1 or 3. Kane requires practice like any instrument so it seems like we should limit the workshop to people who have expressed interest (Jess and Toshi), [and of course anyone else who expresses interest now]. Mochi Mochi benefits from investing in something like this only *if* the recipients plan to practice the instrument to the point they can contribute to the performances.
