Upcoming Events

Applied Music Theory

Feb 4-24, 2019 at 7:00pm

A 90 min class (small group) for music students to bring their instrument and learn to apply and use Music theory principles. This approach allows students to experience the concepts they’re studying and move their hands or voice through them accordingly.

This hands on approach builds a much deeper understanding and memory of these Music Theory foundations, taking them from ‘understanding concepts’ to ‘doable skills’ on your instrument. Guitar, piano, bass, voice...whatever you’re playing!

Monday nights 7:00- 8:30

Annette Brosin Ph. D. Music Theory and Composition.

Student Showcase - Imagine Cafe

May 26, 2019 from 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Students are invited to perfrom at our monthly showcase at Imagine Cafe. It's a wonderful coffee house setting and a very safe and heartwarming space to see and hear what a few of our students are playing or singing each month.

It's just amazing to see these brave souls share a song or two, and gain some experience playing for a small audience.

Dorothy and her team are delightful hosts and are a massive support to our budding musician community. Thank you Imagine Cafe!

2:00 PM start
