Workshops and Concerts

Due to the current COVID-19 quarantine, we are rescheduling our regular concerts. Tune in for Save the Music: our live-streamed concert series benefitting our community’s artists and other non-profits. More info HERE.

News of new reschedule dates will be forthcoming. Please email with any questions.

There are no upcoming events at this time.


While we have suspended all in person lessons, we are offering a full program of classes and private lessons online! Playing music at home is a GREAT way to spend your time at home. Signing up for online lessons is also a huge service to our teaching artists, as they are losing significant income from cancelled shows. You can signal your interest in online lessons by emailing

If you’re interested in taking private lessons, we offer instruction on a variety of instruments. Click HERE to learn more. If you don’t see something offered, just ask! We’ll do our best to match you with an instructor for the instrument of your choosing. Email us at or call 434-806-7062 to discuss placement and availability.


All in-house jams will be cancelled until further notice. Please check back for updates. We are now offering virtual jams! If you are interested in taking part in an online old-time jam session or a singing session using the Rise Up Singing songbook, please contact or for further details.
