    Chat with the Groupmuse team

    After you've decided to host a private groupmuse, you’ll book a time for your first conversation with a Groupmuse team member. We’ll explain everything you need to know, make sure you’re ready to host, answer questions, and take it from there.

    Pick a date for your private groupmuse

    Once you’ve chosen a date, create your event on our site. Once approved, we’ll spread the word about your groupmuse to our network of local musicians in your area.

    Local professional musicians come to you

    Sit tight while musicians from our network of high-level professionals make offers to play. We’ll assign the group that works best for your time, location, and capacity, and introduce you to your performers.

    Invite your community

    Once we find musicians, it’s time for you to build your crowd! You can invite whomever you want, but the event will not be made public to anyone outside of your network.

    Emcee your groupmuse

    Our Host Checklist makes it easy to run your groupmuse smoothly. You’ll gather the crowd, introduce the musicians, and make sure everyone in the audience makes a contribution for the performers.

    Find your bliss

    Close your eyes and let the music wash over you! Hear the breath of the musicians, and feel the focus of an entire room of people connected over the same moment of expression. No phones, no talking - just music that’s been rocking our world for hundreds of years.


You’ll always have full control over whom you invite. Typically, Groupmuse reservations are open to the public. But, for your private groupmuse, you'll be able to choose.

Who pays?

Everyone in attendance is expected to make a contribution of at least $20 for the musicians. We guarantee that all musicians are paid at least $100 for in-person concerts, so you will be asked to cover the difference if needed. Also, audience members will pay a $5 reservation fee to book their spot online.

Can I make requests?

Just as much as Groupmuse is about community building, it’s about creating intimate, enriching performance opportunities for professional musicians. As such, we insist that musicians retain artistic control over their programs, instead of audiences and hosts.
