Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM)

Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) Program

The North Carolina Arts Council contributes to this program to enable students in grades 4-12 to learn to play fiddle, banjo, and guitar in Appalachian styles from well-known musician/teachers.

The 2017 JAM sessions will be held at Shining Rock Classical Academy from 3:30 to 5:00 pm each Tuesday from September 12 through May (final date TBD). There is a $150 yearly fee per student, with siblings discounted to $50 each. The public is invited to the year-end performance.
