Group Classes with Trevor and Eric

Registration is now open for both Performance Classes AND Pop/Jazz Jam Sessions. No Additional Fees for current GAMA Students!

Eric Young and Trevor Villwock  are two of our excellent teachers here at GAMA who will be leading performance and pop/jazz jam sessions over the next several Saturdays.

Performance classes are open to ALL levels and ages, even if your piece is incomplete. They are a great chance to play in front of other students in a very friendly and encouraging setting. Eric will be leading several performance classes over the coming months.

Trevor, who is very experienced in both Classical and Jazz styles, will be leading our first Pop/Jazz Jam Session on October 20th at 2PM. These sessions are open to students of high school an adult age who have had some past experience or lessons in a pop or jazz style. Beginners are highly encouraged as well as more advanced players.

Sunday, December 9th — Robot Rock!


Welcome to our 4th annual Robot Rock concert fundraiser, which brings in about 150 people and raises money to help send local engineers overseas to teach robotics to under-served kids! No only will there be amazing bands, solo musical performances, and stand-up comedy, but we’ll have more than $1500 in silent auction items for you to bid on and win.
Doors open at 5pm. Tickets (which cover all 9 bands, access to the silent auction, and a chance at a door prize) can be purchased here.
