Nice to see everyone at VIOLAMANIA!!!! I hope you had as much of a blast as I did! What a wonderful night! What great playing! What a crowd! What a feeling to be with so many like-minded people!
Here's a little advertising-- If you have students who have studied for at least a year and have a little theory or maybe an advanced one that needs a lot of challenge and they live anywhere near North Berkeley or can get to the North Berkeley BART, here's the thing for them.
Crowden Center for Music in the Community's John Adams Young Composer Program has openings for serious music students ages 7-18. Includes weekly private lessons with professional composers, weekly workshops and seminars, and performances of students works by professional ensembles.
