John McGaha, a professional multi-instrumentalist, music composer and producer with more than 40 years of experience, will lead the program. He will bring various instruments for participants to learn more about and explore from his collection that includes a mandolin, violin, guitar, penny whistlers and exotic options like a Guzheng or Oud.
