Let's Make It Social

Grow your community of musical friendships. The live ZOOM workshop allows you to learn new skills while reconnecting with friends. Keep the workshop running all weekend and see what you learn about other instruments and instructors. Check in from time to time to see who else is tuned in. Use the 15 minute break between workshops to connect with friends. 

The More You Know The More You Grow.

Award winning songwriters, guitar players, mandolin players, fiddlers and banjo players will be presenting 45 minutes of insightful sessions on instruments you already play and on instruments you may not know much about. Techniques and strategies on the different instruments are transferable. Access to knowledgeable instructors can broaden your musical experience. 

Viewing On Demand 

Seminars will be available for viewing on demand after the workshop weekend.

Expand Your Musical Network

Meet some of the most accomplished artists in the acoustic music world. This is a jumping off point to establishing student/teacher relationships.

Tune in to different sessions and find out more about the instructor and their instrument.

Expand your list of jamming friends. Find out who else is out there playing music. We won't be isolated for ever. We will want to return to a healthy musical community when we emerge from this pandemic.
