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.
