Last day of the HessFest proper, we are going to start with the next event tomorrow.
I sleep most of the morning (since the event starts after lunch) and the extra sleeps helps. I eat the hotel breakfast as lunch (eggs, cheese, bacon... looks more like a lunch to me anyway)
Tom Hess starts with a masterclass on Frequently Asked Questions that touches on a number of different topics: composition, music theory, mindset, music teaching, music career... there is everything for everybody and we all have fun in listening to it. Tom Hess non-politically-correct delivery style is at its best today :-)
After the masterclass, Tom Hess gives a first round of lessons and then we leave for dinner. We have dinner at Red Robin: Tom Hess favorite place.
Once back, Tom gives another round of lessons, and I get one too (I ask him about how to learn repertoire in a short time), and after that there are a few more performances.
Many people are leaving today as they will not be participating to the next event (I always stay for the whole thing) so we have some goodbyes tonight. We also get a few group photos.
And now to bed early: at the event that starts tomorrow we go back to an early morning schedule!
