Personalities sometimes clash and learning to get along successfully with those close to us can be challenging. This summer Herb Glazeroff will be sharing the secrets of building and maintaining healthy relationships in a new class titled Relationship Rules.
Dr. Glazeroff is already known at OLLI because he previously team-taught classes about communication skills with Tere Sievers. His new Relationship Rules class will be based on key principals of interpersonal communication. He will present rules to be considered and discussed. Students will be encouraged to speak for themselves, own their own feelings, make commitments for the sake of a good relationship, and explore a proper balance between praise and criticism.
After earning his B.A. in Psychology at SUNY Buffalo in New York, Herb attended graduate school in Detroit and then moved to California where he completed his Ph.D. and became a licensed Clinical Psychologist. He worked in hospital-based programs, taught at Cal. Poly, did Contract Psychologist work in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and maintained a private practice.
Herb resided in Claremont, CA for 25 years prior to relocating to a New York-style loft in downtown Long Beach in 2006. His rewarding and successful career culminated in 2015 when he retired to pursue other life interests.
Always an active guy, Herb has participated in basketball, softball, running and scuba diving. These days he’s a serious devotee of lawn bowling. He appreciates the game’s challenging aspects and enjoys the social atmosphere that accompanies the competition. He also pursues more sedentary hobbies of reading, photography and movies.
Keep calm and get along!

Join a musical instrumental class where caring, dedicated professionals engage you in developing your own style for your enjoyment! Participants will discover how music can radiate spiritual enjoyment through harmony within a peer group of instrument enthusiasts. Sign-up and see how easy it is to have fun while learning to play a musical instrument!
For instance, Ukulele For All led by Pedro Rodriquez, features
practice for those with an interest, but no prior musical training. Having acquired more experience, students work towards a possible concert level of Ukulele, which
offers additional chord and strumming techniques to enhance their playing skills. Ukuleles, also known as “ukes,” are available in four sizes: soprano (the smallest), concert, tenor, and baritone (which has different toning than the other three). All four sizes have four strings, unlike guitars which have six. Professionals agree that the uke is completely unintimidating. Check it out! It takes very little time before you’re strumming a favorite tune of your own.
The recorder is a historically earlier instrument. It first became popular in the medieval and renaissance periods. Muriel Pendleton welcomes players to Play the
Recorder during the OLLI fall, winter, or summer sessions, instructing all levels of players, including beginners. In the spring, The Recorder Consort class is reserved for experienced players to sharpen their skills. Bring your best smile, your own recorder (recorders are also available in class), stop by, and “whistle a little tune” with Muriel! Join the fun!
