Junior Appalachian Musicians Caldwell


This summer, come JAM with us!

The Caldwell Arts Council Summer JAM Camp is a 9- to 10-week summer program where school-aged students can learn to play their choice of guitar, mandolin, or fiddle in the old-time tradition of learning to play and sing by ear. The program is appropriate for all playing levels including beginners.

Traditional Style and Its Importance: The program focuses on the old-time tradition of playing and singing by ear, a method deeply rooted in the Appalachian region. This approach emphasizes learning music naturally, just as it has been passed down through generations in our community. By playing by ear, students develop a deep connection to the music, fostering skills in listening, improvisation, and collaboration. This tradition is a vital part of our cultural heritage, celebrating the rich musical history of the Appalachian Mountains and keeping it alive for future generations.

· Instructors are Bob Henson for guitar, Jerry McLean for mandolin, and Mary Ervin for fiddle.
· Instruments are available for students to rent for $15 for the summer JAM program.
· JAM Camp fees are $100 for the entire summer with 25% discount available for siblings.
· Participants also can sign up for school year JAM with available instrument rentals. Look for information at this link.

    • Registration is open through the second week of classes. Register prior to 6/13/24. For additional information contact the Caldwell Arts Council (828) 754-2486 or by email [email protected].
