It's a cozy setting in the Gallery of Imagine Cafe. Individuals and duos or small groups of students are welcome to join. Ideal for singers, pianists, and guitar players. Talk to your teacher about playing some music here this year.

St Matthias Church HALL
A comfortable Concert opportunity for students to play or sing a piece of music, just for the fun of it. We'd love to hear what you've been working on this fall.
Consider joining or come and listen to others PLAY.
Final note, we have some new teachers for Voice, Piano, Guitar and Drums, and our core group returning this year, so please keep us in mind if you're studying one instrument and would like to add a second, or know of someone who's interested in lessons. We're always grateful when you recommend us to a friend.
From me and the gang here, have a groovy September!
