See what others are saying about us.

They have created a central meeting place for the musicians of this area, a place where group lessons and individual lessons are given, a place where bands are formed. This is a place where kids learn to play simple songs that are the fabric of life in this area, where they learn how to play together and discover the joy and companionship of playing this kind of music.
