Dear Angelika, Pari, and Reza, Congratulations on a very successfully organized workshop. Clearly, this year, you had invested more effort and attention in the planning and the organization of this event, which produced a much smoother running workshop. You set up the tone for the warm, relaxed, supportive atmosphere that engaged all attendees, and which made learning so much more effective. With so many teachers and talented musicians, performing separately, and mingling and jamming together, I felt I had the privilege of attending several private concerts, on top of enjoying a wholesome family party every evening, with excellent food, and wonderful company. I learned a lot from the workshop classes. It was challenging and hard work for me to try to keep up with the advanced classes, but I feel what I learned was quite worthwhile. I thank all workshop teachers for what they offered. I very much enjoyed meeting the friends I made last year, making new friends, and the time I spent with them all. My only complaint: I am now sleep deprived and exhausted after a whole week of not wanting to miss any part of the activity from 8 in the morning until 3 past midnight!
