NEW ARRIVALS!
Kurzweil
Kurzweil Music Systems

Kurzweil Music Systems was born in 1982 with Stevie Wonder as musical advisor. The first prototype of the Kurzweil 250 was unveiled at the June 1983 NAMM show and people were amazed that both the look and feel of a grand piano was realistically captured in an electronic instrument for the first time. The K250 started shipping in 1984 and it quickly became recognized as the first computerized instrument to faithfully capture the grand piano, which was confirmed in A-B tests with pianists.

NUX 2
NU-X

NUX made its industry debut in 2006. Whether a professional singer-songwriter, hobbyist, weekend warrior, or the next star, NUX has a wide range of analog and digital products to satisfy any musical genre.

Free Mandolin Clinic

Free 2-hour clinic focusing on Simplified Mandolin Chords, Double-Stops, and Basic Improvising. This clinic is hands on so bring your instrument. All levels and abilities are welcome.

This workshop will introduce beginners to a new way of making a full range of simplified chords and double-stops which will facilitate building basic solos. Intermediates will learn how to use these double-stops in several key licks (with corresponding scales and intros) that easily become the basis for constructing solos in the keys of D, A, G, and C.

Our instructor will be Andy McCune.
Andy plays and teaches banjo, guitar, mandolin, and dobro. He performs with local bands Rusty Chops and Titan Valley Warheads.
