Music Makers takes jamming to a whole new level.  What is a Jam Workshop?  It combines the enjoyment of jamming with the Music Makers method of ensemble instruction.  Learn the art of jamming under the guidance of one of Music Makers highly skilled instructors, develop chord reading skills and challenge your musical improvisation. Base material (chord charts) will be provided to each participant via our student portal.  Each participant will be encouraged to work on the base material prior to each session.  The base material will be the foundation of the course...the songs we work thru to strengthen our playing skills.  In addition, at each session, we'll add to the challenge of jamming by selecting songs from Music Makers extensive library to learn how to execute a song without advance preparation. Each jam workshop is limited to 1 or 2 vocals, a maximum of 2 guitars with keys, or 3 guitars without keys, bass, drums, harp, horn. etc. providing a personalized experience for everyone.
