77, 78, 79, 80

77:  Last day of camp.  Had a performance for the parents.  Everything went smoothly, and we’ve been told that the camp was a success.

78:  Studying a little in the evening.

79:  Trip to Rochester.  Gave a performance last night with the faculty of the Eastman Jazz Camp, for which I’m teaching these next two weeks.  Really great to play with all the Rochester cats again.

80:  Ran auditions for the jazz camp.  Maintaining composure while listening to auditions definitely requires some aspect of a performance mentality.  Although I heard a lot of good playing, I think it’s important to be nice and professional when somebody makes a mistake.   Overall, though, all the students have a lot of potential.
