As usual, this is on the third Saturday of each month; Septembers jam will be on the 19th. It’s from 4:00 – 5:00 pm at The Coffee Tree Books & Brew across Bailey Cove Road from Grissom High School in Huntsville, Alabama.
Here’s a map in a new browser page.
It’s geared towards anyone wanting to learn better jamming skills. It’s primarily for my bluegrass banjo and mandolin students, but anyone is welcome and encouraged to bring an instrument: guitars, mandolins acoustic basses, dobros, harmonicas and fiddles are most welcome! Also, you don’t need to be a student of mine to attend.
As we practice at home and in formal lessons, it’s easy to get accustomed to playing in a vacuum. And yet so much of the learning experience in music is accomplished with the direct interaction only found in a live jam session!
The purpose of these jams sessions will be:
•To give you more hands-on experience with playing in a live, yet stress-free, setting. No one’s going to throw tomatoes!
•To introduce students to a wider variety of bluegrass, folk, jazz, etc. songs for possibly learning in the future.
•Lastly, it’s a great way to meet other students!
So, join us – it’s for everyone, whether you bring a banjo, guitar or other instrument to play or just want to watch and learn!
