Pickup Music is a community of musicians, creators and music-lovers. We’re a group of musicians who are building a stronger community than what’s possible on Instagram. It’s early days but together we’re going to create a place where a new generation of musicians can connect and learn from each other.
Pickup was founded by Sam Blakelock, a professional jazz guitarist from New Zealand who now lives in New York. The community started as an Instagram page and has since expanded to over 400k followers across three pages: @PickupMusic @pickupjazz @PickupBeats.
Here’s a few awesome features available to our members:
1) Learn from the best musicians on Instagram
Once you’re logged into our site, you get access to all our online classes. We’ll regularly be releasing new masterclasses with some of the best musicians on Instagram. Our focus is on providing you with modern styles that you won’t find anywhere else.
2) Join the discussion
Our member-only forum is a place to ask questions and get advice. It’s also where members contribute to key decisions on how we run the community and Instagram pages. Our team personally interact with members on the forum every day. Make sure to visit it regularly to stay in the loop.
3) Come meet us in-person
We host shows and meet-ups, starting in NYC and then expanding all over. We’re going to push this online community into the real live world!
There’s plenty more on the way, but for now start exploring.
If you haven’t joined Pickup Music, we’d love to have your support.
