What is your main genre?

All music that does not include a message of hate, racism or homophobia. Music should be joy or at least hope.

What is your main instrument?

I do not play an instrument or sing but love music. I was surprised at how many talented musicians I would hear at various venues did not have a cd. When I would ask them why they never recorded, the answer usually was "I don't have enough time or money" or "I wouldn't know where to get started". Likewise, I have come across a few songwriters that have awesome lyrics and have no idea where to go next. This is an area we hope to add to our workshops this summer. A good friend of mine, award winning recording artist Shawn Thomas was visiting from Florida and offered a class for amateur musicians on how to copyright their original music and how to purchase the rights to record a cover song. The response was overwhelming and JAYA Music was born.

Have you ever performed for a live audience before?

No answer yet


I am the Founder and Director of JAYA Music ( http://www.JAYAmu...­). We are an educational organization offering free workshops to musicians, songwriters and engineers. Both beginners as well as pros.

What Rory W. is saying about this Meetup Group

A great outlet for musicians and song writers. The comments where spot on and the artists who performed appeared to really appreciated the input.
