Seed-- Thanks for the welcome. I am local and would love to meet the other EBMUDcatters. Don't know if I can get the time off work on the 11th, but I'll try- thanks for the invite.
I also know the Lighthouse, when is the gang there next? I'll look for you among the peanut shells...
My voice teacher is Juanita Ulloa. She has a studio in Oakland and another in Walnut Creek, which is where I study with her.
I've been a teacher for a long time, and I love to watch someone with great teaching skills. Juanita has that in spades.
Meanwhile, did I miss your posting about what instruments you play? Does you sing?
