Registration for Fall 2021 JAM is full.

Fall 2021 Registration

We’re glad that this fall we will be returning to a regular, in-person semester at Alleghany JAM! We believe we can safely have group classes again. We will stay informed and keep following recommended safety protocols. It’s so good hearing music at the AJAM house again!

This semester we are pleased to offer classes in fiddle, banjo, guitar, and mandolin. We also offer activity classes including: dulcimer, stringband and a special class called Sing-Art-Dance! where students get to try three different activities in one class: singing, dancing and making “crankies” (art combined with music & story-telling). AJAM provides instruments to use for free and we have discounts for families who are in financial need or have 2 or more kids at AJAM. Space in our classes is limited so register early to save your spot!

Important Info:

  • Each student takes three 35 minute classes (one primary instrument and two activity classes) on Mondays and Thursdays 3:30 – 5:30pm.
  • Group classes begin September 16th and end December 16, 2021. Students at GCS and PCS will be bussed to Sparta, but parents need to arrange for pickup. Please pick up students promptly at 5:30pm
  • Please plan to attend the parent orientation meeting on the 1st day of class (Sept 16th) from 5pm-5:30pm at the Alleghany JAM house (360 N Main St., Sparta).
  • Unvaccinated adults and children are asked to wear masks for their safety and the safety of others. We care about the health of our local families & community.
  • Children grades 3-8 are welcome – no musical experience necessary and we also have intermediate classes for students who are play music already.
  • Register soon to save your spot. Class sizes are limited. Register online today or you can print this registration form and mail it to Alleghany JAM, PO Box 1326, Sparta, NC, 28765 or give it to your school teacher.
  • Please register by September 6th though we will still accept some registrations until Sept. 13th. The sooner you register the better we can plan and the more likely your child will get the classes they would like.
