  8. Good Morning! My partner and I are new to the area - We came from New York and rented a little spot in near Ajijic. We are still getting our feet wet here with the vibe and various happenings! We are both artists -- I'm an illustrator, mainly for Children's Literature and he is a songwriter/musician/producer. We actually wanted to get involved with the creative community here (that I know you have board for!), but we had two questions: - My partner is looking to give lessons in piano and/or songwriting (any style; he's got a huge background in rock and jazz) and wanted to know the best way to go about it or where there would be interest? -We are also looking to get an actual piano at some point (we couldn't bring ours down) - so any thoughts on where we can look? Anyway, really glad to be here and looking forward to speaking with you all!
