The JAM Factory is a new community music space offering an alternative to pricey one-to-one music lessons, solitary bedroom practicing, uninspiring teach-yourself books, and exclusive music ensembles. We are creating a space where anyone can learn, share, and enjoy music through a combination of accessible group classes, drop-in practice space, peer supported learning, all included in an affordable monthly membership. We emphasise building a fun, group-focussed learning environment, which, combined with our flexible membership model, makes everything from picking up an instrument to mastering music theory as fun and affordable as possible.
Carefully structured classes create a fun, social, and relaxed atmosphere, in which you can learn and practice the foundations of playing and writing music. The JAM Factory’s group lessons offer much more support and motivation than learning alone, and give everyone the opportunity to practice playing together from day one; a pretty important musical skill! At the JAM Factory you can currently learn how to play keyboard or guitar, about music theory or songwriting, or how to read music. You can even just come along to one of their jams to practice and enjoy playing together. The team are currently working to introducing classes for singing, ukelele, and a drum circle, so watch this space!
The JAM Factory’s ambition is to provide musical education that is accessible to everyone, to promote connection and collaboration across the diverse backgrounds that make up the musical community, and to provide a purpose made space for the practice of music.
- Their flexible membership provides a more affordable alternative to one-to-one music lessons, and provides people with the freedom to explore a range of classes and choose what they want to learn.
- Group classes and social workshops offer the perfect opportunity to make new relationships and connect over the shared experience of learning or playing together, as well as being a source of support and encouragement.
- The existence of a space especially for the practice of music increases the visibility of music making, and increases the possibility for musicians to learn and share their music with each other.
