Music Collaborative

Music Collaborative makes learning to play and experience music more accessible by providing casual music lessons instructed by students, for students. Music is an important part of life that busy students often overlook. Some feel overwhelmed by the amount of time it takes to obtain the resources to learn a new instrument. Some need the extra encouragement to continue practicing. Some are unaware that learning an instrument is something that they can do. The club provides students with instruments and instruction so that all they must do is be willing to learn.
