The North Carolina Arts Council contributes to this program to enable students in grades 4-12 to learn to play fiddle, banjo, guitar, and mandolin in Appalachian styles from well-known musician/teachers. The JAM sessions are held at Canton Middle School from 3:30 to 5:00 pm each Tuesday from September through April. There is a $150 yearly fee per student, with siblings discounted to $50 each. The public is invited to the year-end performance.
