    Summer Travels

    As musical activities for the year slow down, thoughts of summer fun, additional learning and exciting travel enter the thought process. While the possibilities are endless, there are some destinations and events musicians may want to consider.

    I’ll start with the obvious.   We’d love you to stop by and visit your local Pepper store, or attend one of our more than 40 summer music reading sessions this summer.   It’s a nice addition to any trip you have planned,  and you’re likely to find inspiring music to consider for next season.  So, if your travels take you our way and you have time, put us on your itinerary.
