What is Alleghany JAM?
Alleghany JAM (AJAM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving Appalachian Heritage by enriching the lives of youth in our community through traditional music. Thank you to our sponsors!
JAM classes (instruction in Fiddle, Banjo, Guitar, Mandolin, Dulcimer, Bass, Singing, and Clogging) meet after-school Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:15-5:30 pm.
Appalachian Arts classes are held Tuesdays, 3:30 to 5:00pm at the JAM House. In these classes, students will participate in a variety of activities designed to expand their knowledge of traditional songs, art, and storytelling. This class combines three components: performing a Reader’s Theater, writing original songs, and making a “Crankie”.
