Are you a music lover? Do you play an instrument or simply want to support more music in your community? Gayla M. Mills discusses her new book Making Music For Life: Rediscover Your Musical Passion, which explains the ways in which you can host your own house concerts or get involved with local music groups that depend on volunteers. She encourages musicians to teach music to novices, create jam groups, mentor the next generation, and perform in hospitals, schools, and other organizations. She also discusses how amateur musicians can use music to live and age well. Stay after the reading for a piano and cello duet. Sponsored by the City of Fairfax.
