Studio Facebook Page - Sue Field's Music Studio
I have a facebook page for the studio and post articles, pertinent to learning and of musical interest. Search for Sue Field's Music Studio on facebook and it will come up - the link, seems unreliable.

San Francisco Symphony I do encourage you to browse through the SF Symphony booklet, (in the studio) for the array of concerts. We are also fortunate to have a variety of local concerts, at Stanford University and  from the local symphonies, Peninsula Symphony and  Symphony Silicon Valley. At the Century cinema in Redwood City you can watch live opera performances from the Met, on Saturday mornings.
