What Happens in Jam Band 101? 

A typical Jam Band 101 class includes the following:

Drum Circle - with every bandmate on their own hand drum, the band plays a rhythmic technique game that establishes the BLAM (Big Lesson About Music) of the day.  

Rock Pit - the band levels up the BLAM (Big Lesson About Music) of the day by leaving their hand drums, and playing a more full-body game up on their feet.

Speed Song - now time to apply the BLAM of the day to an actual song. The band exercises their creative muscles and writes a short original song with a verse & a chorus in a matter of minutes.  

BandStand - complete with vocals, keys, electric bass, electric guitar, and drums, time to bring it all together where the band puts the BLAM of the day to music and plays their brand new original Speed Song on the instruments with a game on the bandstand.

What Parents Are Saying:

"Love how the instructors interact with the kids. My son and his friend LOVE going to class every week and really want to show Sergio that they are learning. Also, while waiting a couple times there have been impromptu play alongs with instructors I don’t know. Just to keep the kids engaged. Really cool."

-Donovan, a BMF Dad

"My daughter started with one of their summer camps a few years ago and she has been taking individual and band lessons there ever since. She's not just become a fantastic guitar player, she's found a wonderful group of friends and a supportive staff and environment to grow as a person. This is a wonderful place for budding child musicians of all ages!"

Band Class VS Private Lessons

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!
