This group brings musicians together to develop their skills and knowledge through group classes, seminars, workshops, and jam sessions.  While the group previously focused on guitar, it is being rebooted and expanded to include all instruments.  The group is headquartered in Beaverton, but sessions are not limited to the west side.

Prior classes have included Survival Guitar, which is a method of playing that relies on listening and communication to help everyone play with more confidence and to create interesting and appropriate parts in a group setting.  Like the group itself, this class will be expanded to include other instruments.  Other classes have included beginning guitar, fingerstyle guitar, and songwriting.  More classes covering different techniques and instruments will be added as interest & opportunities present themselves.

The main goal of this group is to help members build a musical toolbox and fill it with all kinds of tools to help each musician bring his/her own feeling and style into each performance, whether alone at home oo on stage.  We will play, jam, learn, laugh, and share.  Come join us!
