The studio just purchased a Kurzweil K 2600 X with all the sounds you could possibly want. As a drummer I cannot fully appreciate the complexity and beauty of the instrument. However, it’s got me wanting to go back to keyboard lessons and lay down some tracks of my own. What a wonderful instrument and it is waiting for your visit.

What if there was a war and not enough people were interested in participating for it to take place? What if Peace became a world wide consciousness? Humm, sounds like something worth working for.
Stillwater Studios supports several organizations and two of them are Positive Music Association, http://positivemusicassociation.com/index.php/ , and Softly International, http://www.softlyinternational.org/.
March 28 to 30
There will be a conference of wonderful singer/songwriters at “Harmonizing with Humanity” sponsored by the Positive Music Association and Itoi Music. Greg Baer and Karen Taylor Good will be the keynote speakers with a boat load of (29 and counting) wonderful musicians. The conference is in Phoenix, AZ. For more information or to register contact www.JourneyMates.net or call 877.288.9824.
April 9 to 16
“Vacation for Spiritual Musicians” in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Another great opportunity to join the worlds best musicians. Kick back, catch the rays, and groove on their beautiful sounds. It doesn’t get any better than that. I may miss this one as I need to stay home some time and work in the studio. All play and no work ……… actually, that doesn’t sound too bad.
May 3 to 10
I will be co-hosting a trip to Roatan, Honduras sponsored by Softly International. Their goal is to build a bed for every child in poverty sleeping on the ground. The focus is in Honduras, Peru, and Costa Rica. I went last year and it was a life changing experience. Other opportunities to make a difference for children are out there such as Jana Stanfield’s support of an orphanage in Bali. (Sorry I couldn’t go Jana.) Find one and go. You will love the experience. We have a few openings on the Honduras trip if you want to join my group.
May 15 to 18
Great Lakes Music conference. This will be a first for me but I’m looking forward to it. I hear it is a little smaller than Sound Connections in Kansas City but with just as much heart and reward.
There are many more in September but I will post those later.
