Not sure and would like to know more about MABA?

Well of course there's the picking...

Indoors...Outdoors...In a Park...You name it... Extremely Fast or Extremely Slow...For Beginners, Experts and In-Betweens...Heck you don't even have to know how to play an instrument...You just have to have a love of the music...


Every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 1 pm to 4 pm in room 227 (entrance 6) there is picking at the Hope Presbyterian Church. A major feature of this weekly picking is the Slow Jam...a special picking session  where everything is slowed down just a bit to give the new pickers an opportunity to learn some new songs. Throughout the year there are workshops held as well as special get-togethers such as the Potluck Dinner, Spring Festivals, Picking in the Park and Picking at the Winery.

The non-profit exemption means that all contributions and dues are tax deductible.

All of the above can be yours. All it takes is a love for the music, a sense of community and just $15.00 a year. Instruments are optional..
