Shakori Hills is delighted to announce a resurgence of the Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) program in Chatham County! JAM’s mission is to provide communities the tools and support they need to teach children to play and dance to traditional old time and bluegrass music.
We are currently looking for fiddle, mandolin, guitar and dance instructors, persons interested in serving on the committee board and donations of musical accessories (small bows, rosin, guitar, fiddle and mandolin strings, tuners, etc). Teachers will be paid $25/hour.
2017 JAM in Chatham County will start out small, with hopes that momentum will build up amongst our musical community to strengthen and expand it in upcoming years. This year, we will offer two eight-week sessions, April 20 – June 8 and August 24 – October 8, at Silk Hope Elementary School, meeting for 75 minutes, on Thursdays from 5:45 – 7pm.
The program is open to all fourth – seventh grade students, regardless of district or schooling status, so long as you can get your child to the classes in Silk Hope. Click HERE to register!
