I encourage anybody out there that hasn’t joined a group yet to consider it—it’s a lot of fun. Not to mention you’ll really improve your playing! The best way to do this would be to call local private teachers in town and see what they would recommend. They always know what groups are out there and could even pair you up with a few students that might be interested in forming a small group. I would recommend this to any students that have been playing at least 2 years.
