PACOLET JUNIOR APPALACHIAN MUSICIANS

PacJAM provides an opportunity for area youth to experience community through the joy of participating in traditional music.

Local students and their teachers are taking their part in a multi-state regional effort to preserve the music of the Appalachian cultural heritage, filling the air with guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and ukulele music each week. In addition to instrument instruction, students learn local music history and theory, ear training, dance, folklore, and rhythm development.

PacJAM offers sessions each fall and winter/spring semester, as well as an intensive day camp one week each summer. Students of all skill levels ages 6-late teens, as well as adults, are invited to join us for instruction in traditional music.

Spring 2022 instructors include Gaye Johnson, Amy & Bob Buckingham, Woody Cowan, Carson Moore, Will Trakas, and Emily Wait.

For questions or additional assistance, please email Julie Moore, Program Director or call 828-859-8322.
