Adult Coached Jam

This is an awesome opportunity to get together with other people and practice a few songs as a band. Learn the skills needed to rehearse and play with others in a band setting. Two or three songs are posted a month in advance so that you can learn them before coming to jam with our instructor Alan Medcalf. Come on out and build a band with us!
