Junior Membership

Our goal is to offer students a space in which they can enjoy learning and developing their skills as a musician. We teach electric guitar, bass guitar, drums, keyboards and vocals.

Even if they've never played an instrument before, we give children the tools they need to grow in confidence, develop hand-eye coordination, and even improve math skills!

Throughout each term the students will gain a wide range of practical musical skills and experiences, ending with a final performance for their friends and family.

About us

The Junior Academy of Modern Music (JAMM) was created by two music enthusiasts: Dan and Pete, who have crafted a fun and educational space for individuals to learn and play modern music. The workshops, originally designed for the younger age group, take place on Saturdays at WaterRat Music Studios in Woking, a non-profit studio that provides practice and recording space for musicians.

In September 2023, JAMM expanded its offerings to include sessions for adults over the age of 18, ensuring musical exploration isn't just limited to the younger generation.

At JAMM, we believe music lives at the heart of our society, shaping and nurturing us. Unlike traditional music tuition where students simply learn and practice pieces in isolation, we emphasise the joy of collaboration. Here, students experience the thrill of playing the music they've learned alongside fellow band members. This unique approach not only fosters teamwork and musicianship but also boosts confidence during live performances.

Not sure if JAMM is the right fit for you or your child? We offer a free taster workshop so you can experience our approach first-hand. Book a trial here.
