We seek to facilitate inclusive and culturally relevant opportunities for persons in the Shenandoah Valley to develop flexible and multi-dimensional musicianship through learning, performing, and teaching music.
A community in which everyone is empowered to realize their personal goals for lifelong participation in music.
We work with local musicians, teachers, and nonprofits to create spaces for people to learn, perform, and teach music. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for updates about programs and events. Get in touch with us if you want to join a program, start something new, or ask us anything at all.
