The Music Complex RI “Jam Sessions”

Our Jam Sessions are a lot of fun, and they’re EASY to be a part of! For students who are interested, we help them prepare the song(s) that will be performed and we place students together into bands. Then on the evening of the Jam Session, students get to show up and perform as a part of a band – in a fun, supportive environment

They are an excellent way for students to enjoy the thrill and energy of playing in a band, while learning to work together as musicians. Playing as part of a group is one of the best ways to instill confidence, grow as a musician, and stay motivated to improve your skills! Many students don’t have the opportunity on their own to play as a part of a band. But with our Jam Sessions, we make it easy for students do just that! There is a “living, breathing” aspect to music that is really experienced when students play together!

These Jam Sessions can be a great learning experience and they are open to all of our students! We intentionally choose songs that have good teaching elements, as well as those that will allow a variety of skill levels and instruments a chance to participate and shine. We may do any variety of songs – ranging from Classic Blues tunes to Classic Rock to Contemporary music and more! The songs may fall directly within a student’s current musical interests, or they may open the student to an artist or genre that they otherwise wouldn’t have sought out. We’re always open to students’ suggestions and requests as well! Our Jazz Jam sessions concentrate on Jazz Standards from “The Real Book”

Jam Sessions are also a great way to meet other students, and to build relationships with people who share many of the same interests and goals. The audience is composed of other students and family members – this makes for a really great, supportive environment for students. There’s a sense of unity and community that is developed as students perform together in these events! In addition, when students have performances like these to prepare for, there is an intrinsic motivation that comes into play, and propels them to excellence.

Jam Sessions offer a great opportunity to play as a part of a band, to meet other students with common interests, and to build a sense of community.

We typically schedule our Jam Sessions about 2 to 4 weeks in advance; this allows everyone who wants to participate the time to learn and prepare the specific song(s) that the bands will perform. Anyone who is interested in participating just needs to let their instructor know, and look on the schedule to see the details of upcoming sessions..

There is a $20 fee per student who registers to participate.
