Playing music with others is a big step in a musician’s development.

Being able to communicate musically and improvise in a group setting is a skill that takes practice, but can be one of the most rewarding aspects of music. These are just a few of the opportunities nearby to play. Of course, you can always find great, informal music happening all around NJ and NYC.
