At the Big Room in Boyds, MD




Sunday July 29, 2012 - 11:00 AM

In conjunction with a weekend program of seminars and concerts, the four world-renowned musicians of The Lost Dogs will host a one-hour workshop focused on providing children with an introduction to the fun of making music. For several decades Terry, Mike, Derri and Steve have produced, recorded and performed on a wide range of major label and independent releases. Their extensive professional resumes range from Grammy nominations and Dove awards to soundtracks for video games and a Nickelodeon series (more details on each of their efforts below).

As a special element of this weekend's program the band members wanted to share the fun of making music with kids in a low key entertaining setting.

The intention will be to send children home with a new appreciation of the art of music making, perhaps with a new skill, and encouraging expression and collaboration.

Bring along instruments (such as guitars and small percussion) if you have them. All levels of experience are welcome. This class provides an excellent home schooling activity.

COST : $15 per child, which includes one (optional) adult observer per family/group.


Advance reservations are required. Activities and the concerts will only be held open until paid reservations reach capacity.

Make your reservations now (or send any questions to us) at the email address provided below.
