What We Do
JAXJAM is a three-day camp experience where kids (grades 3-8) can find a passion for music or hone the skills they’ve already acquired. They will do this through small and large group ensembles, clinics, demonstrations, and performance opportunities.
Young participants will build beginner and intermediate level skills on voice, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums. They will explore the world of electronic music production and the recording arts. They will be encouraged to express themselves through poetry, dance, and song writing. They will get the opportunity to perform for their peers, families, and friends while learning live sound production techniques, performance etiquette, and stagecraft.
We will strive to demystify the pop/rock star celebrity and make music a fun and accessible experience.
Who We Are
JAXJAM is a collaboration of area music professionals of many disciplines. Local teachers, performers, writers, therapists, music retailers and celebrities will come together to show young people how alive and vibrant their local music scene can be.
Special guest performers and keynote presenters will open a world of music that is not only entertaining but also enriching.
Kids will meet and jam along with some of the areas most accomplished pop/rock musicians and learn the tricks of their favorite hit makers. We aim to foster lasting relationships between veteran music makers and the next generation of budding music stars.
