Jam Band 101

Our Jam Band 101 program is especially for 5-8 year olds

Through fun, game-based activities, kids learn the basic skills to play in a group and have a blast while doing it!

 

Got a little one itching to start jamming? This is the place to start! Designed specifically for beginner instrumentalists, your child will have the life changing experience of getting his/her hands on an electric guitar, drum kit, keyboard and more! Through fun, game-based activities, kids will learn the basic skills to play in a group and have a blast while doing it!

 

Playing with other musicians not only gives each student a new perspective on their own instrument, but shows them how their part fits into the whole to create a song.

Playing music as a group teaches kids how to listen to others and in the process, themselves.

Instrument Exploration 

While students in private lessons focus on one instrument, students in Jam Band 101 (our band classes for beginners) play a variety of instruments throughout the year. Many students will conclude the program with a specific passion for an instrument they didn’t know about when they started. They might not have developed the technique yet to express themselves fully on the instrument, but they are fired up to learn more!

6 Reasons Everyone Needs to Play Music

Music builds confidence. Every part of a musical group is essential and being part of that big picture is huge. Whether it’s one note , or a massive solo, the group needs you and pulling that off builds confidence. Huge confidence.

Music is about communication. Playing in a band isn’t that different from playing a sport when it comes to how essential it is to communicate with others.  Get good at that, and you’ve got a skill you can use in music and beyond.

Music is about creativity. From songwriting to arranging a cover tune, music challenges kids to imagine new possibilities.  And when done as a team, the possibilities are endless.

Music is ridiculously fun. Forget about the piano lessons you took as a kid that you begged to quit for years. Fun is one of the main two motivators for a child and there’s nothing more fun than playing music with your peers. These band classes are a blast!

Making music is work. There is no sugar coating the fact that developing the tools to make music with others demands a work ethic. Musicians can learn alone but there is nothing like the motivation of others to take it to the next level.

Music requires skills. Playing in a band is the best way we know to get kids to deal with the fact that playing an instrument or singing on key….well….it ain’t always easy. A band helps each musician define the exact skills they need. And better yet gives them a clear goal for their practice time at home.

What BMF Parents Are Saying

“My daughter takes private guitar lessons and is also in Jam Band and she LOVES it. They have taught her so much already, she’s making friends and is learning how to work in a band. She’s learning responsibility, the importance of practicing your instrument, completing her HOMEROCK and the list goes on…. I am very happy with BMF and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, educational and quality music program for their child.”

-Maria, A BMF  Mom

 

“My son has cycled through a series of attempts to get started in music. He has always been interested, but we could never get him going with it in a sustainable way. However, this fall we found BMF. Now my son plays constantly. He almost always has his guitar in hand. His confidence is growing and now he is even singing! we are shocked by the transformation and so proud of him.
I can only credit this to the amazing teachers and experience he is having at BMF.”

– Annie, BMF Parent
