Groove House Sessions feat. Students

Musicians dream of playing on a huge stage in front of a huge crowd, but any career musician understands the value of playing small, intimate performances. Most musicians work their way up playing hundreds of house shows before they step foot on a big stage.

December 11, we will kick off our week of in-house shows at Groove House. Instead of attending private lessons, each student will perform in 1 of 20 different house shows. All performances will be in the big front room of Groove House. Each show will be about 1 hour long.

More info to come!
