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.
60 Minute Class
Piano, Guitar, Drums, Voice, & Bass
In each class, JB101 Students will experience:
✓ Drum Circle: Kids learn communication skills through rhythm games
✓ A BLAM Game: Big Lessons About Music teach everything from song form to building melodies.
✓ Instrument Exploration- each child will get to try all of the band instruments: guitar, bass, drums, piano, voice
✓ Writing a song together as a band and working as a team!
BMF Classes are Inspired: Never Repetition Based or Boring!!
$153/month/musician for band only (FD $145.35)
$130/month/musician for band if enrolled in private lessons at BMF (FD $123.50)
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
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
