Coffee Shop 2004

Coffee Shop Jam 2004

In April 2004 a bunch of my students took over Cafe Bella in downtown Seattle and performed songs for their families and friends. For most, it was the first time they'd sung in front of a big group. It was kind of like a recital, but we called it the Coffee Shop Jam, which sounds much less miserable. We try to keep misery to an absolute minimum here at Heartwood Guitar Instruction. Actually, it was a blast. Here are videos of the performances.

All videos are in Windows Media Audio/Video format and between 2 and 3 megs in size.

      I know, Paul–those are ANCIENT videos in an old format. You can play them on a Mac using VLC media player, but I don’t know if it’s worth it…unless you want to delve into the very humble beginnings of my student concerts….
