Scroll down and sign up to get the Zoom link and be put on the mailing list. Pickers who wish to play should know something about Zoom:

  1. You must enable Original Sound — Go to Zoom Guidelines for details.
  2. Ear buds/phones are a very good idea — they prevent echo on most systems.
  3. If you have technical difficulties contact me anytime offline. I’m here to help.

If you just came to listen you can make requests. Following the demonstration we may break into learning and listening groups. It depends on how may of us are present.

Sign up to receive the Zoom link to the next circle.

Now you are on the list. You may get an e-mail once a week.
