For the first time in quite a long while I decided to teach a reed making class this summer. I had a class of four, and the students did a very good job. Now, of course, the hard work begins for them: to really learn the craft takes a lot of determination and a lot of hours. (Along with a lot of cane and a rather aching back, as they learned!) All said they were very surprised at the difficulty, and one commented on now understanding why reeds cost what they do!

I enjoyed it so much I think I’ll do it again next year! Each student received a copy of my reed making book, included in the three session fee. I do have it for sale in pdf form for a mere $15 via PayPal if anyone else is interested.

Great job, Brenden, Jerily, Korin and Timothy! Keep working at it!
