Class Schedule:

Song Class 12:30-1:45

This class is all about how to learn and jam on bluegrass songs. We'll be walking you through some bluegrass classics, working on their chord progressions, melodies, and lyrics. The focus will be on giving you new songs to call at a jam.

Tune Class 2:00-3:15

This class is all about fiddle tunes! We'll be learning some jam favorites from the bluegrass and old time repertoire, focusing on getting the melodies in our heads and the notes in our fingers. 

This class is melody oriented; if you're a banjo or dobro player that isn't used to playing the same melody a fiddle might play (e.g. rolling through a tune) but would like to learn fiddle tunes, get in touch with us at

Jam Class 3:30-4:45

A whole class just for jamming! Here we'll be working on all the ins and outs of playing music with other people. We'll work on calling songs, taking breaks, listening in, and communicating with your fellow jammers. Bring a song or tune to call!

Open Jam 12:30-4:45

Back by popular demand! We'll have a room set aside for folks interested in just getting together to play. To coordinate jam times with other Taborgrassers, head on over to our facebook group
