Learning Music’s Music Learning Workshop
Sunday March 1st 8pm
FREE

John Wood will lead the audience in an interactive lecture, teaching a few pieces of music that will culminate in a massive live performance. Participants are asked to bring a small instrument (especially if you have a small, battery-powered keyboard) for the occasion; members of Learning Music will be on hand to teach and play. We will try to have extra instruments around for anyone who can’t bring one. Anyone attending the event should be prepared to participate in group singing, clapping, or easy instrument-playing. No prior experience is required.
