Who We Are: 

 The BRMMG are composers, producers and luthiers living and working in Southwest Virginia.  We are united in our love for creating music, musical instruments, sound and video recordings and sound amplification systems.  The BRMMG is an inclusive organization and welcomes those of all musical orientations and skill levels.  

What We Do:

The BRMMG presents monthly meetings.  The meetings are for all members and prospective members.  In Addition to the regular business meeting, we will have songwriters and luthiers workshops held separately.  Songwriters present their compositions live or on tape and receive critiques from the members present.  Your song will receive the considered opinions of your fellow songwriters, luthiers will display their instruments and receive comments and suggestions from other instrument makers.  The spirit of supportive peer review will help us all improve in our chosen field. 

 

As A Member:

You will receive a chance to display your songs, instruments, sound systems and productions to fellow artists from the region.  You will find a supportive and dedicated atmosphere that will help you improve and succeed in your chosen field.
