This is a group for young musicians, beginner through experienced, to meet young instrumentalists alike and come together to practice your own music, whether you're working on some cool riff, scales, arpeggios, etude studies, or audition pieces. It's a place for some serious practice and the occasional outing to watch musicals, symphony or chamber music performances, live jazz gigs, or other musical performances.

Our practice sessions are great if you want a little company every now and then away from your typical sound proof practice room session. For the beginning musician, it's a great place for moral support as you bow through technique drills. You could even find here a small group to sight read some duets or small ensemble pieces. 

People with musical interests of any genre are welcome! - Classical, symphonic, jazz, or anything else.
