Music Industry Weekend at Bosch Bahá’í School (3)

The first full day at MIW draws to a close and I’m already considering hitting the hay at 10pm. It’s been an incredibly full day, worthy of a good rest at the end of it.

The day kicked off with an interactive session geared not towards our achievements as musicians, but towards our experiences from the past year.

Music Industry Weekend at Bosch Bahá’í School (2)

It’s amazing how much a three hour time difference can knock you out if you’ve been travelling all day. I left for the MIW at around 8:30am EST and, after having flown to Dulles and then San Jose, I arrived at Bosch at around 6pm PST. The first order of the day was dinner which was so, so welcome after the journey.

I was introduced to at least half of the participants at the MIW, meeting musicians from all backgrounds – amateurs, professionals – and learning about their backgrounds. The atmosphere at Bosch is incredibly relaxed, with a focus on participation and learning, no matter what your experience. Couple that with the wooded and secluded surroundings, and you have a recipe for a magical, magical time.

The event kicks off in earnest tomorrow, when I’ll be leading a panel on ‘Songs and Social Conscience’ along with Chris Ruhe and, a little later on, giving my first workshop on ‘Inexpensive But Effective Vlogging’. My first mission, though, is to get a good night’s sleep and enjoy sleeping in silence – much more news tomorrow!
