We see music as a highlight of daily life, not a task to be mastered. It’s a path to connecting with family, friends, and community.
Our students build technical skills on their instrument of emphasis at their weekly lessons, then learn the foundations for collaboration to play and jam with other musicians at monthly group classes called Hootenannies.
Our students explore the basics of all things strings and percussion at their group “Hootenanny!” In fact, we feature a different instrument each month and learn its history and how to incorporate it into a jam session.
Our students love building connections between different instruments. A warm-up on the drum set prepares piano students for practicing their cross-body hand placement. Violin students delight in practicing their songs on the mandolin as they share the same tuning. And most everyone likes taking a break from their usual instrument to pick a banjo.
