This week, I have been at the American String Teacher’s National Conference in Kansas City. It has been a fabulous week of instructional seminars, exhibits, and networking for string educators and students around the from around the United States and even some from around the world. Electric bowed strings are always a big part of this conference and this year was no different. The conference included a huge “Eclectic Strings Festival” that focused on jazz, rock, and other “Alt” Styles. Several NS Design dealers were featured in the exhibit hall with booths. It was a great week and NS Design was certainly a big part of it! There was certainly a fantastic “buzz” around the NS Design products and educational possibilities.
