What Past Attendees Have Said

“It’s not just a course, it’s a community.”

It gave me my first opportunity to play with other people. Some of the lessons inspired me to finally consider learning lead guitar. I came home jazzed about learning new things!

- Jenny Chun-Ossowski

One of the best weekends I’ve had. Totally ignited my passion to push myself and keep going. Lauren is awesome and the community she’s built and the people who are in it are simply amazing. Can’t wait for next year!

- Donna Mavromates

There is a level of fear that’s gone now…For the first time, I felt like I had something here.
