We welcome 2017 and hope that all of you experience an incredible new year; full of friends, music and maybe a resolution or two. For instance: pick up an instrument. If you have strictly been a "fan" why not take a moment to consider taking lessons and learning an instrument for the first time. We have a lending library for musical instruments and we would love to be a part of your adventure in learning to play. Contact Annie Savage here: email@example.com. If you are interested in lessons, please look at our member instructors first:

In a world where everyone is busy; busy to the point that they can't take the time to just sit and play together, let's make a commitment to one another to think of music as important, and worth the investment-- and the time --to share with others. Take lessons, perform for the sick or elderly, or teach a child the joys of making music.
