Players should be able to play in the keys of A, C, D, E, G, at a minimum. Reading music and improvising solos are pluses, but not required. Informal auditions are held during the first meeting.

"I’ve been playing bass with Harper’s Back Porch Revue since it began in the Fall semester of 2017. Although it’s listed as a “class", it’s also a lively performing group of people of all ages, from novice to expert, featuring acoustic guitars, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, fiddles, percussion, vocals and more. We learn about and play classic old-time American folk, country, and blues music, and instructors Scott Cashman and Bekr Ali do a great job keeping it fun and letting each player create his/her own part to fit the songs, with gentle guidance. It’s a group learning process, and the performance vibe is friendly and collaborative. It’s always the best part of my week!" - R. V.

I started a new job as a graphic and web designer and the digital badge I got was part of the reason they chose to hire me. I couldn't have done it without you!
David is a truly amazing teacher who makes learning the harmonica lots of fun. His enthusiasm is contagious and he has a heart of gold.
The Writing Salon was so much more than a writing class. The experience was energetic, enthusiastic and supportive. I highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to develop their skills as a writer!
As always, your Spanish classes are packed with new information about the language. You make it easy to learn Spanish and keep it very interesting. Thank you!
I have participated in many LLI classes over the past two years. Gary is a terrific discussion facilitator and brings excellent background knowledge to our classes. I'm learning so much about Foreign Policy.
Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your class. Hope you will have more classes since I am a novice in the wine area and am anxious to learn.
