Community music workshops are a great way for musicians, aspiring musicians, and music fans to engage the local community, perform, learn, and share musical experiences.  If you have a song you want to play, music you want to share, are learning a new instrument, or want to meet other musicians, the Community Music Workshops provide a clean, well lit place for people to get together.  Even better, the workshops are free, all ages, and open to the public!

The 2024 schedule will be: Fourth Thursdays, 7 to 9pm, January through May.

A Short Bio:

David Garland started the Cloverdale Music Workshops in partnership with the Cloverdale Arts Alliance in 2012, as part of his senior project at Sonoma State.  He went through the music programs in Cloverdale, the SRJC, and SSU, as a percussionist.  In addition to playing with local symphonies, plays, and bands over the last 25 years, David believes that music is an essential community resource that should be valued and accessible by all.  Over the years, we’ve hosted acoustic, electric, jazz, percussion, and Beatles workshops.  Our partnership with the Cloverdale Arts Alliance drives the goal of enriching the local community with music and the arts in ways that benefit our town, our musicians, and our residents.
