International Feel

(title from a vintage Todd Rundgren tune)...

A lot more goes on during a student's stay at The Summit School than just guitar building, and students from all over the world share more than luthiery skills.

These photos are of some of our recent students after a Friday night Shabbat or Shabbos, (the pictures were taken after the meal). Adams’ parents came up visiting for the American Thanksgiving and on the Friday night invited all the instructors and students to the traditional Jewish meal, which Adam had wanted to share with everyone. After the meal the students went out to the beach and had the bonfire.

The students from left to right are: Stinni – (Iceland), Adam – (New York), Trevor – (Virginia), Monique – (British Columbia), John (Florida), Jay (British Columbia), and John – Adams’ brother here visiting Tyler – (New Jersey). In the last photo, Pete is in the picture at the end and he is from Massachusetts.

It was a good night.
