Practice Saturdays – Schedule

VdGS-NE Saturday Zoom Early Music Practice Sessions continue!

Feeling all alone when you practice?
Want to practice but just can’t get started?
Would having some company help?
FREE, no-risk, no-commitment!  All players invited!  All instrument types welcome!

To accommodate varying schedule preferences we’ll be offering some sessions alternating between Saturday mornings and afternoons.  Each session will be followed by a half hour reserved for online conversation and socialization. Morning sessions are from 9:30-11:30 AM eastern time and afternoon sessions from 3:00-5:00 PM eastern.

Just tune in via Zoom any time between 9:30 and 11:00 or 3:00 and 4:30 p.m EST, mute yourself, turn on “gallery view” and see who else is also practicing!  Use Zoom chat to communicate with the host or with others who are practicing. For the last half hour, unmute yourself, have a coffee, tea, or a snack, and join in the weekly socializing half hour! Feel free to stay for as much or as little practicing as you want.  No need to stay the entire session unless you want to. Come just to practice, change your strings, or just to socialise.
