The Elk Creek Music Society (ECMS), which hosts a series of house concerts, also hosts music workshops designed to help local musicians help each other. This meetup group is for the latter. Visit to learn about the former.

• Are you a songwriter who would like some help getting new ideas?

• Would you like help creating an interesting arrangement of your song for the studio?

• Are you a singer who would like to hook up with some instrumentalists?

• Do you have lyrics waiting for the right music?

• Would you like to learn some new playing techniques like alternate tunings or effective use of meter?

• Would you like to have some backing harmonies for your next gig or in the studio?

• Would you like to get help from and offer help to others with these things and more?

Then, this is your group. All experience levels are welcome. You don't have to be a master to have good ideas!

Meetings are held in southern Chester County, PA. As the group grows, others may host so we are not as limited by the geographic location. Who knows, perhaps this will culminate in a project where we play a gig during which each member takes a turn out front with the others backing him/her up. What fun!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
