Term 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, 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 (J.A.M.M.) was created by two music enthusiasts: Dan and Pete, who have created a fun and educational space for young individuals to learn to play modern music. The workshops take place on Saturdays at WaterRat Music Studios in Woking, a non-profit studio that provides practice and recording space for musicians.

At J.A.M.M. we believe music lives in the centre of our society allowing us to grow as individuals as well as experience one of our senses to its max. Studies have shown that students who play instruments or study the arts are often better in math and achieve higher grades in school than students who don't*.
