RELISH THE THRILLS - MASTER YOUR SKILLS
Playing music alone in your house or garage is a great way to work on your technique and skillset but jamming with other musicians is when playing music becomes REALLY FUN. Do you want to improve?
Did you know that players enjoy learning and improve much faster when placed into a band format?
Jam Academy currently has four levels of bands to choose from.
"DEMO TAPE" level - Beginners welcome - Practice 2 times per month.
"EP" level - Advanced Beginner/Intermediate - Practice 2 times per month.

this event's scheduling
The Rock Rally is when we get a bunch of Jam Academy students together.
It's VERY important to find a good group fit so we discuss the kids' music interests and we learn their individual experience & comfort levels.
If you're wondering if your kid is old enough, the answer is yes, as long as your kiddos can keep tempo they can participate. Most of our band members are between the ages of 11-17 but we've had a performing group with kids 9-11 that were terrific :)
Students should be able to keep a steady rhythm on their instrument and be able to play complete songs Early level students may still participate but will be assigned simplified parts.
If the student is ready and capable our director will work to place them in one of the groups.
1. JAM ACADEMY'S first ever bands were born out of a desire to appear at Woodinville's annual parade. We selected three groups of individuals with a true passion for music to play songs on a flatbed trailer for all of Woodinville to see and enjoy.
2. Back then (it was 2008) we were still known as Spotlight Studios and our founder named the new rock band program "Jam Academy". The success of the program inspired him to completely rebrand as JAM ACADEMY MUSIC SCHOOL shortly thereafter.
