POA Goes Virtual No In Person Rehearsals or Events Till Further Notice 

Comrades, 

We will not be having a concert in April or any more in person rehearsals this season. If the virus leaves us soon, we can start back up and reschedule our concert. I'm sorry. 

What I can offer is a Monday night zoom and lessons should you want them. We can hang out and talk music , play for each other, and learn some stuff. Now would be a good time to ask theory questions, learn uke or guitar or drumming. I am still here for you. 

I will be in my zoom room on Mondays from 6-8pm CST. Please come join me. 

Here's how to do it: You can do it by computer, smart phone or call in. 

1.Go download zoom.com and sign up for a free account. 

2.Send me an email if you want a private zoom lesson kiyaheartwood@gmail.com. 

3. On Monday nights just click this code to get in our zoom room. 

4. Email me or call 512.568.6936 if you need help.
