Community Band

Community Band is back! 2021 style with online jams & recording projects. We don’t really know exactly what this is going to be like, but we’re gonna fire up the engine and figure it out together. The goal remains the same as always: to provide a space where musicians of all ages and skill levels can play music together, grow in their musicianship, and have a good time.

Free to participate. All ages. Everyone is invited.

Community Band Jams

Every Saturday at noon

In this interactive Zoom class, musicians of all skill levels and backgrounds participate in various music learning, playing, and listening activities. Musicians with a desire to learn new music, improvise, and connect with a musical community are encouraged to attend with any instrument. For most of the jamming, participants are muted – this way individuals can feel comfortable to make any sound, experiment, and learn.
