Mountain Mamas Music Monday - the 2019 wrapup
Hey Mamas! I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season filled with fun, friends, family, (and of course, great music!). I'm so lucky that I've been able to share so many of those fun moments with my Mountain Mamas friends (Snoop!). Remember to subscribe to our site and follow us on Facebook if you want to join the fun.
What's New for 2020
Kimberly and I have been putting our heads together, collecting feedback, exploring new opportunities, and making lots of new connections and we have a lot of fun stuff in store for Mountain Mamas Music in 2020.
Starting in January, we'll be partnering with Swallow Hill Music in Denver to host a monthly Mountain Mamas Music jam where women can try their picking and jamming skills in a supportive, judgement-free zone. The first jam is on January 19 from 1-3 and we look forward to seeing you there - don't forget to tell your Denver-area friends!
Also, mark your calendars for Mountain Mamas Music Camp - Spring 2020 in mid-March in Berthoud. More classes, more instructors, more instruments, and more details coming soon...
Grab a friend (and/or a Mama!) and go see one of these upcoming shows!

What to Watch
I've about had my fill of holiday music, so here's something a bit different for you. Plus, you can't go wrong with these two...
Students Learn From People They Love (New York Times) - This is one of the reasons we work so hard to find great teachers, not just great musicians, for our camps and workshops. The right connections can be magical (for the teacher and the student)!
It reminded us that what teachers really teach is themselves — their contagious passion for their subjects and students. It reminded us that [people] learn from people they love, and that love in this context means willing the good of another, and offering active care for the whole person.
Enjoy the last few days of 2019! I look forward to seeing you in 2020.
