NEWS & ADVENTURES of a thoughtful heart songstress mama    SPECIAL LOCAL ANNOUNCEMENT
~ the Amanda West newsletter 
Dear Santa Cruz & Bay Area Friends,

Just a friendly reminder about some local happenings...

#1 ~ I will be playing the Ugly Mug in Soquel in TWO WEEKS! This is my local show for a while, so I hope you can make it! I'll be sharing the evening with the lovely Seattle Songstress, Jaspar Lepak.

#2 ~ Registration is now open for Intro to Guitar Summer Camp! If you know anyone ages 6-12 interested in learning guitar & the joy of music, send them my way.

#3 ~ As a reminder, I am now teaching private music lessons, specializing in work with children and women, for voice, guitar and songwriting.
#4 ~ Also ongoing is Womb Song, singing circles for pregnant women. Did you know SONG can be one of the best labor tools? Neither did I a year and a half ago, but after seeing so many women come through Womb Song and use it during their birthing, I am sold! It's amazing. 
So much more I could say about all this, but I'll keep it short & sweet for now. Hope to see you soon, and send me a note anytime.
love & song & gratitude,
~ Amanda
