Your Web Site

Your web site must meet these criteria in order to be included in your directory entry:

  • It must work. I shouldn't get an error message when I try to visit it.
  • It must have a link on it that leads to
  • The link to must actually work. If I click on it, it must take me to
  • I must be able to find that link when I visit your site.
  • It must not be obviously under construction. The menu choices on it should lead to whatever information they claim, not to "under construction" empty pages.
  • It must not violate my "good taste" requirement. That means it should not contain hate speech, hard-core pornography, or obvious illegal activity.

I will check your web site to see whether it meets the above criteria. If your web site does not have a link to that actually works, I will not include it in your entry!

Where on your web site should I look to find the link to

Required If You Want Your Web Site In Your Entry

Tell me what menu choice to pick from the home page and where to go from there.

Please describe it well. If I can't find the link within 60 seconds, I won't include your site in your directory entry.



Where You Are

Where do you teach or perform on a regular, predictable basis (for example, once a week), or in what city are you based? Don't include nearby cities where you have the occasional gig. The point of this question is to identify where you normally operate.

This information is required. You will not be added to the directory without it. You're not required to identify where you live, just where your classes or performances are held.

Please do not give me the name of a county or "greater xyz metro area". Give me names of specific towns.


Please enter no more than three. If you work in more than one, pick the three most important.

If you wish, identify the nearest large city.
