This last Friday at Hobbit and Faerie Hunter Camp we had a very special guest join us. Max Ribner from Max Ribner Band and Youth Music Empowerment met us at Shevlin Park for a song and sharing circle. He taught us about two part, four part, and eight part beats, tuning into our inner truth, and voicing our beliefs to the world. Later that evening he invited our students to join him on the jazz stage at Summerfest in downtown Bend. What happened onstage was truly touching, inspiring, and magical. We are very thankful for Max and the way he empowers the youth!
