We invite you to become a charter member of the Santa Barbara Acoustic Music Association (SBAMA.org) and help create a community resource which will promote local year round acoustic music, education and lutherie activities to children and adults.
The primary objective will be to provide a forum to coordinate:
Acoustic Music with an emphasis on small venue concerts by acoustic musicians in all genres;
Music Education through local school & non-profit programs and private teachers to provide resources and opportunities to get into music; and
Lutherie Education through lectures, local shop visits and workshops to provide demonstrations on the science behind the creation of sound, concepts of instrument building & craftsmanship, and teaching the building of simple stringed instruments from common materials in the grade schools to more advanced instruments from precut kits in the middle schools. The modern renaissance of lutherie is truly an American story of invention and craftsmanship in need of preservation in a world of global fabrication.
Celebrate the healing power of music and working with hand with local acoustic musicians, teachers and luthiers.
