Marin Community Music School - Chamber Music Coachings   8-13
    "Marin Community Music School in San Anselmo is greatly expanding its coached chamber music program this fall. In addition to our Sunday morning reading sessions, we now offer two series of regular coachings on weekday evenings with performance opportunities. Our staff now includes both string players and pianists. We invite players of all interests, experience levels, instruments, and ages to join us. We are as eager to serve students who are new to chamber music or returning after a long absence as we are experienced players, and we are careful to match compatible colleagues."
    David A. Lusterman, Director
