      1) NSAI Los Angeles/Pasadena Schedule



      Sunday,May 19, 6:00-9:00pm at Thurnher House - Group Song Evaluations.  Song evaluations are not only a great way to hone your songwriting skills, they also help to prepare your songs (and you) for the type of scrutiny they are likely to encounter in the real world of the music business. The workshops are also a good hang and a great way to meet potential co-writers. Beginning through advanced writers in all genres are welcome. Bring a song on CD, cassette, or to play live plus 10 copies of your typed lyric sheet.  Lyrics only can also be critiqued.   Free for NSAI members, $15 for non-members after two free trial meetings.

      -----------------------

      1a) Directions to Thurnher House

      Thurnher House is located at the entrance to beautiful Lacy Park in San Marino.   The address is 1485 Virginia Road, two blocks north of Huntington Drive.  The best way to get there is to proceed along Huntington Drive as if you were heading toward Hill-Harbison House, the previous meeting place.  When you get to Virginia Rd, instead of heading South toward Hill-Harbison, go North.  After two blocks, Lacy Park will be on your left. Thurnher House is just beyond the entrance to Lacy Park.  You can park on the street or in the Thurnher House parking lot, the next driveway after the park entrance.
