Learning to Play Together – CANCELLED

Online Event
If you are a student who has learned a few tunes, but still feel like you are in over your head when playing with a group, this is the class for you!

You don’t have to be able to play “at speed” or perfectly, the class will accommodate the participants’ skill levels as they progress to the inherent joys of playing music with other people. While our lessons are being conducted online, we will focus on playing with an accompanist or following another melody player. Melody instruments only.
