Children need music in their lives more than ever right now.

This semester, Alleghany JAM is pleased to offer classes in fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and dulcimer. Due to the pandemic we have chosen to give private, 1-on-1 lessons to our students so they have the highest quality instruction possible until we are able to safely gather in group classes again. Most of these private lessons will be online but read below if your child needs in-person lessons.

Although private lessons usually cost a lot more than group classes we are keeping our tuition exactly the same for the fall semester (including discounts for those who need financial assistance or for families that have 2 or more kids attending AJAM.

Our teachers are making videos to go along with private lessons on our Alleghany JAM Youtube channel plus we have a brand new 100+ page Alleghany JAM Tune & Songbook we’re really excited about! Each registered student will get a free copy, (a learning aid for our lessons this year).

Space in our program is limited so register early to save your spot! Our children need music in their lives more than ever. We hope your child will choose to return and participate in Alleghany JAM’s music programs this semester.
