Even people without an instrument managed at the seventh annual Girgarre Moosic Muster on the weekend.
Girgarre Town Hall had its instrument stash available as the muster offered musical workshops at beginner or intermediate level.
Children’s workshops also featured at the event for the first time.
Music classes focused on string instruments, including double bass, guitar, mandolin and violin.
There was also clogging, music notation, poetry writing and singing sessions.
‘‘The workshops are designed around bringing people in who would like to try an experience in music as well as honing your skills as you learn to play better and better,’’ event co-ordinator Jan Smith said.
The muster coincided with the town’s monthly farmers’ market.
The event was developed to bring together people and promote music.
