About the 34th Fall Texas Toot

Registration is now closed -- hope to see you in the Summer!

34th Annual Fall Toot
Nov 20 - 22, 2009
Lakeview Methodist Conference Center
Palestine, Texas

We hope you will join us for the 2009 Fall Toot, with an excellent lineup of all-star faculty, including some whom we haven't seen for a few years!

Our classes include an array of introductory and technique classes, small, one-on-a-part ensembles and larger mixed vocal and instrumental groups. The size of the workshop enables us to create classes for all levels of students, from those of modest skills to advanced players and singers.

The Toot once again takes place at the beautiful Lakeview Methodist Conference Center in East Texas. See the maps and directions page to learn more about where we'll be, how to get there, and so on.

In addition to classes, there will be English country dancing, a faculty concert, the Boulder Early Music Shop, the famous/infamous Great Texas Krummhorn Konklave, refreshments, and more.

Great new offer! Bring-a-Friend tuition discount — invite a first-time participant to come to the Fall Toot, and get a 20% discount on your tuition! Or bring back a former Tooter who's been gone 5 or more years, and get a 10% discount. Share the fun, and save! -- so be sure to get your reservations and deposits in as soon as possible.

Volunteering to Help

As always at the Toot, a big part of the fun is getting to know each other (and learning who the good cooks are!). If you can help with the snacks in the break-room (either by helping to set out the food, helping with clean-up, etc.) then please let us know in advance. If you can provide some snacks, whether homemade or store-bought (drinks are always welcome too), then please bring them along. After a rousing Krummhorn Konklave, there's nothing that cheers the soul better than a batch of homemade brownies or chocolate-chip cookies! Be creative and generous!

Look at the Faculty and Class sections for faculty bios and lists of classes being offered. You can register online! Or print a paper registration form for your friends!

We look forward to welcoming you to our Texas Tradition!

The Texas Toot Fall Workshop reserves the right to modify programs and faculty rosters in response to enrollment, student preferences, and playing levels.
