HELLO EVERYONE. Glad Mixey is still holding the fort down and offering a lovely space for a playing field.
 
I'm Here with Gail Anne Dorsey in LA preparing to do a DVD for teaching beginning and intermediate students in piano and bass.
We are both scared as we are unconventional teachers but do know how to make music.
 
After the DVD we will do 20 hours of teaching ONLINE courses in all aspects of playing music.
 
We also had a jam session with Gail on drums and myself on piano and Max my grandson (3 years old on drums ) tearing it up.
Gails eyeballs almost fell out of her sockets!
 
Stay tuned.
Best
Mike Garson

OMG!
 
Mike... Why would you and Gail be sacred about teaching?????  You're both naturals!!!!  I know what you can do.  JEEZ!!!  Just do what you do.  It'll be awesome.  I've seen you dig down and pull out the best in so many musicians and singers too... and you're able to change up and taylor how you impart information to a particular person.  I know this about you.
 
Maybe that's what you're nervous about.  When you're in front of a camera, you're speaking without that one on one.  Just remember the countless personal lessons you've given... and how you've felt over the years as a student too.  You'll fnd the way... which is better than it being scripted.  It'll be NOW lessons... waaaay more interesting. No worries you'll be fine.
 
Gail... When Mike told me that you were going to be teaching, I knew it was going to be GREAT!  I saw this clip that you did for Earnie Ball a while ago,  and I knew then that you were a natural for connecting in a beautful down to earth way... no ego... just honest sharing. You're going to be fantastic.  Don't worry!  I also heard what you composed for Mike's birthday one year.  Anyone who could come up with that, has a beautiful soul which transmits easily to others.  You shine!
 
Best to you both this week... and big kisses to Max the wonder boy.  I can't believe that cutie! We need home movies up here.  You're teaching him drums is unreal!!
 
Let us know how it goes... and may DB will get his tapes back too this week.

Thanks Mixey and Geno,
 
I didn't sleep much but buzzed as yesterday I did my music lessons and then Gail and then Carl Verheynen on guitar. 
 
Yesterday the jam session expanded to Gail on bass and Max on drums and  myself on piano. (Max is 3) but totally intuitive and Gail's eyeballs looked like they would fall out in disbelief. 
 
I will try to create a short video after I emerge from the studio in 3 days. 
 
Mike

WOW... I like "Under Pressure" Geno.  Gail's voice soars! Beautiful!!  Like the shot of just your hands Mike... JEEZ if I didn't recognize your water bottle, I wouldn't know it was you.  What's up with that?  lol
 
I can see why you chose Verheyn to teach guitar on the DVD. 
 
I'm putting this into the guitar thread too.
 
 
Hope things are going well for you today Mike.  Happy Birthday to Susan too.

So was it Gail who talked you into shaving your head?  What did Susan say about it when you got back from the tour?

It took me about 2 seconds to decide to shave my head in 1993.  My family was in shock.  Travis' school friends told him I looked like Sinead O'Connor.

You have piano / bass and guitar covered so far, I see.  Will you cover any other instruments on the DVD?
