Join us for this premiere project, perfectly blending a jam session among friends with a group music class. All ages are encouraged and just about any instrument too, from guitar to bass to banjo to ukulele and more! Just bring what you have. Each week we’ll work on a new song. Songs will span a variety of genres, and all skill levels will be welcome and challenged. We’ll even have some performance opportunities for you!
