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.
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! Fiddle will be taught by Kenny Jackson, Guitar by Brian Moyer, Mandolin by Alex Meredith and Dance by Katy Shoemaker.
Please get in touch if you are have questions or are interested in participating! Send us an email at email@example.com or call 919-542-1746, and again, the registration application for your child is HERE.
