10th Annual


This day has been set aside for you!


We’re taking the intimidation and pressure out of the equation

and helping people play music just for the fun of it. For the first time-or the first time in years!

You don’t have to be a musical genius to learn to play or sing your favorite songs.

     It doesn’t matter what age you start at…or how good or bad you think you are…

                   Everyone is musical!
