Oliver Waitze of the New Acoustic Gallery in Solingen, Germany, sends the NAG's June 2010 newsletter.
The main item is the Mediterranean Music School, which will be held from 31 July to 7 August in Tuscany, Italy, for players of all levels. Oliver - who was profiled in Flatpicking Guitar Magazine at the end of 2009 - will be teaching the 'Flatpicking to Gypsy Swing' course on guitar, and Jesper Rübner-Petersen will be giving a parallel course on mandolin. There will also be wine, sunshine, concerts, jam sessions... The school is located in the historic Albergo Poderino San Cristoforo, near Volterra.
