Classes & Workshops

Community of Sound is dedicated to education and artistic development. We feel that sharing our skills with the greater community will help develop an audience for creative music experiences as well.

So we teach. 🙂

All classes & workshops, like every event at CoS, adhere to our Code of Conduct. Our teaching philosophies tend to focus on hands-on work and encouraging the development of a personalized sound. All skill levels and experience are welcome to all of our classes and workshops.

Drop-in fee of $15 helps keep the doors open. Monthly membership of $50/mo gains entry to all classes and a discount on workshops. It’s like a yoga studio for sound.
