Pacolet Junior Appalachian Musicians 10 Week Workshop

January 16 @ 4:00 pm

PacJAM provides an opportunity for area youth to experience community through the joy of participating in traditional music.

Local students and their teachers are taking their part in a multi-state regional effort to preserve the music of the Appalachian cultural heritage, filling the halls and galleries of TFAC with guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle and ukulele music each week, . In addition to instrument instruction, students learn local music history and theory, ear training, dance, folklore, and rhythm development.

Now in its 5th year, PacJAM offers ten-week sessions each fall and winter/spring semester, as well as an intensive day camp one week each summer. Students of all skill levels ages 6-14 years old, as well as adults, are invited to join us for instruction in traditional music.

Instructors include: Phil Jenkins, Phil & Gaye Johnson, Amy & Bob Buckingham, plus special guest teachers.

New for this year, online registration and payment is available for all PacJAM classes. Click below to sign up or enroll your child. For questions or additional assistance, please email or call 828-859-8322.
