So glad I finally got around to signing up!  It was hard to choose my classes, but I'm looking forward to the ones I finally picked: 2 with standard dulcimer, 1 chromatic, 1 ukulele, and 1 vocal (Dave Para's Shape Note class!  If you have ever wanted to try shape note singing, please consider signing up!  It's the first class after the lunch break, it's always a lot of fun, Dave's ability to SING and LEAD 4 different parts at the same time is truly genius, there are only 4 shapes to learn in the version we do, and did I mention how much FUN it is?!!!
