What It Is
The Student Jam is a way for students to take what they've learned in lessons and apply it in the real world. You learn your respective part to a song and then get on stage and perform it! This happens on the fly without a group rehearsal (hence it's a "jam"). The shows always take place at professional venues where touring bands play regularly. Student Jams are free to anyone taking lessons at the Foundry.
The families that play together stay together - we're celebrating bands that include family members!
