VdGS/GNY 2016-2017 Events

Hausmusik (New Streamlined Hausmusik)

Here’s how it works: let the contact person know if you are interested. No coaching, but the contact person, who will also play, will see who signs up and find music for a compatible number of players, instruments, and levels. Every effort will be made to accommodate outliers at the following Hausmusik session (if, for example five people want to play treble).

With Arnie Tanimoto.
Hosted by Heidi Waleson (Upper West Side)
