Wednesday Jam Workshop - learn, play, and relax

The weekly Wednesday jam is an informative participatory workshop to fit every musician and vocalist!

...and a great way to meet other musicians!

Goal: Everybody plays, together.

An informative, question-friendly jam where we demystify the music, break it down into simple pieces, and get everybody playing together and having fun. Everybody plays and sings, and helps choose the songs.

Everybody has a current 'speed-bump' which they can't solve on their own, getting in their way. New players, ex-players, solo players, and those of us in a rut. This is the place to get your music moving - to get past that speed-bump.

Join in, and take your music where you want it to go.

Push yourself by playing a new instrument, and take advantage of the setting to learn about other aspects of music you don't regularly interact with. Learn-By-Doing in an informative, safe, easygoing environment where every kind of musician can find their place in the group.

Learn to lead a band from the mic, or blend your lead lines, or create a stable back line. Learn to create live music, together, the way you want it to sound.

Whether you're an absolute beginner, an ex-player looking to get in shape again, or you simply have something to gain from an informative live-music session, come on out and have some fun!
