Please forward this email to Chris Parvin.
Chris, my name is Kim Feil. I volunteered as manager of the shop and activities next door to the Worthington Bank when there was a Pura Vida coffee shop called Local Color. This particular location was an offshoot of the South Side on Lamar (apartments) as a secondary location for community outreach as a coffee shop. The initial location in Dallas served in a ministerial capacity as an unconventional Lutheran church on the roof by Mark Tobias Joeckel who now manages the Arlington Music Hall.
Local Color was run by volunteers, and the coffee was by donation. We had monthly art shows, open mic, and a few store front street events in Downtown Arlington from 2003 to 2006. 
Afrer following Local Color to two other locations (Cooper Coffee) and then at the UTA Student Lutheran Center (where I painted a second site Local Color mural), I busked at the Arlington Farmers Market at 205 East Front Street which is now the home of what I call, Petsche Music Hall. I named it that because they have yet to name the building (although some people refer to it as the Black Box) across from Tipsy Oak.
I am affiliated with Pulse Dallas brainstormer and financiere, Attorney David L. Wiley. I have been attempting to get a similar program started in Arlington where the musicians are paid and strategically placed in areas with foot traffic in sidewalk performances.
I currently volunteer coordinate an open mic at Truth Vinyl records downtown across from Hooligans at 300 East Abram and invite you to come check out this really cool record store and meet the owners, Ric Delzell and Carol Anderson, who have graciously equipped their store with a stage, PA, and lighting system. Their community outreach provides a venue for free weekend shows and our weekly open mic on Thursday nights from 5 to 8 p.m.
I lead a busking group from the connections I’ve made through the open mic of all the talented musicians. Arlington Buskers is grounded with Arlington Nights, a musicians’ networking group, who meets monthly. Part of my role is to find new venues for our musicians.
We are extremely excited to hear about the transformation of the Worthington Bank to a new location for White Rhino Coffee! 
I am offering any assistance with booking musicians who appreciate new places to perform and hope you are open to offering your venue and street front as available to our local musicians.
Welcome to Arlington White Rhino Coffee!
Sincerely,Kim Triolo Feil817-564-2577

KimFeilGood Guitar Performance Classes

June 20, 2019

I teach incorporating strumming rhythms to simulate drum percussion, & to simulate bass during guitar playing so as to not fall into the trap of boring strumming. I teach stage attitude presence/confidence and dance movement to and from mic. I also teach transposing music to find where to be singing in your natural voice as well as how to arrange your set list and tunings to vary your sound between songs to not create burn out for the listeners. Teaching songwriting can also be covered in a 2 hr/week session for $70 for the first session, then $60 for the next, then $50, then $40, then $30 for the last four of our eight week session with no commitment or advance payments required. If a school student cannot devote 2 hrs, we can do 1 hour sessions by halving the above fees and going for a longer term 16 week goal in learning what I have to offer over my 50 years as a female in a male dominated music world. My edge in syncopating the rhythms began in being a tamborine percussionist first. After learning guitar chords, I was bored with the traditionally taught basic 1ah, 2ah, 3ah, 4 strumming patterns. I teach how to NOT be a boring guitarist, basically. I coordinate the open mic at Truth Vinyl records and hope to have my students be utilizing the stage to refine their skills. Happy learning and have fun performing! Call or text me 817 564-2577.

How to NOT be a boring guitarist….nuff said!
