Friday July 27, 7:30-9pm – The Summertime BEATLES SOCIAL @ Old Town School, in SZOLD HALL (the east building) Lincoln Square. Hosted by Tommi Zender with guest Gabe Michael. Participants take home a generous packet of Beatles songs (& early solo LP tracks) and a great big smile. It’s kind of like a campfire sing-a-long without the campfire. Chairs, music stands and air-conditioning are provided. BYOB. Advance sign up is highly recommended at http://www.oldtownschool.org, by phone or in person at any OTS location.

Tommi has open spots for Private Lessons. If you or someone you know wants individual music coaching (learn your favorite songs, many styles of guitar, percussion/drums, music theory, songwriting, singing, RHYTHM!) Private study is a great supplement to group classes. Simply reply to this email for more information.
