Recreational Music Making

What is RMM

"Recreational Music Making refers to playing musical instruments alone or in a group without the goals of mastery or performance."

What this is simply saying is that Recreational Music Making is about the experience of making music more than it is about the outcome. Recreational Music Making should provide a fun, inclusive musical experience for everyone, and the RMM philosophy emphasizes that over the philosophy of mastering an instrument or instruments on one's way towards a performance-based goal.
