As we state in our Mission statement: Laguna Beach Live! strives to increase the awareness of and participation in diverse musical experiences. To this end, we have presented a number of Music Insights! programs for adults who wish to learn more about particular genres or topics. Participants have enjoyed the sessions and report their musical experiences have been enhanced whether they try new music or  attend the ones they love.


Our recent presentation was All About that Jazz, a 3-part seminar that explored the history of jazz  from its roots to today, Jazz “rules” and techniques, and how jazz musicians make their magic onstage and was taught by two educators with live demonstrations by professional musicians.

Please let us hear from you if you have a particular interest in a topic. Contact us here.
