Learn to Play an Instrument
or Get Back In Touch With Playing

We create a comfortable entry point to group music-making for adult beginners and adults who played music previously and would like to resume. Many of our members started with little or no previous musical experience.

A wonderful opportunity to learn and play music with like- minded, fun-loving individuals. 

We learn, we play, we have fun!

JOIN US FOR A VISIT OR PRACTICE 

We practice on Saturday mornings at the Fort Garry United Church, 800 Point Rd., Winnipeg, MB.

Drop in any time or contact us for further information.

Learn your instrument or learn to read music in a comfortable and supportive environment. As you increase your knowledge and skill you can move up to the transition group to fine-tune!

You can continue to improve your music reading skills while playing your chosen instrument in a nonjudgmental learning environment! When you feel ready you can join the intermediate group.

At the intermediate level you will continue to improve your skills while learning new arrangements. Throughout the season these are often performed for family, fundraising events and other occasions.

The NHB Jazz Band was introduced for the 2014/15 Season. We have performed a number of well received concerts to date. The NHB Jazz band is an exciting additional option for members in the beginner, junior or intermediate sections.
