Every year possible … Jazz camp is life changing… In beautiful La Honda, Ca

Jazz Camp 2009~ Once again, life changing!

Hi , I just wanted to share my amazement of the magic that happens every year at Jazzcampwest.com

It is awesome, the people are so nice and they provide a nest for nourturing the perfomance based camp…

I danced in the Salsa performance, I played in the Blues Band performance, and I sang in the Gospel Choir performance.

I also played for the first time ever with my brother Phil, and my sister Rosaura…( check out rosaurasandoval.com she is also a tremendous photographer, whom dances and sings beautifully)  on stage, together we did a Brazilian version of “The Girl from Epinema.”  My seesto Rosaura sang it in Portuguese.. amazing!

In addition, I did 4 open mics in total, and definitely treaded on uncharted waters as I played Bosanova grooves on the shaker, and gave it a go on the drums. I survived and I am determined to nail down the Bosanova groove, the Samba groove and the Songo Groove… I wish to play these grooves fluently by next years Jazz camp 2010, June 19 ~ 26…come on out and join me …all levels are welcomed from beginer to advanced …

I finally learned how to play the Brazilian Pandero …my teacher Ami M. was amazing, kind and stern …all needed to really learn it welll…practising I will be!

With all my love, I send out great vibes to all the 300 people whom attended this years Jazz Camp.  See you all next year and for all the people whom will be there for the first time…. You too will feel the magic of Jazzcampwest.com!

Photos are forthcoming… once i get the winners though photoshop. lol

Peace & Love Always!
