Jam Club is a free after-school drop-in program for teens looking to practice their skills and explore their creative potential, all while making new friends. All skill levels are welcome – whether you’re a guitar prodigy or you just started toying with the idea of picking up a new musical hobby, Jam Club is the place to be!

As a team of musicians and educators, we understand that opportunities for young people to practice their skills and explore their creative potential outside of the classroom, particularly in the current public health climate, are few and far between. Jam Club serves to fill this void by providing a necessary collaborative component of music, allowing students of all ability and experience levels to hone their skills individually or as part of a group.

Don’t own any instruments of your own? No problem! At Jam Club, students are welcome to make use of our extensive fleet of instruments, ranging from keyboards, acoustic and electric guitars with amplifiers, ukuleles, and drum kits!

Want some specialized guidance on your craft? We’ve got that covered, too. Each week, participants will be supported by National Music Centre’s talented School & Public Program Educators, all of whom are skilled musicians, multi-instrumentalists, and experienced educators. Additionally, each week we have a dedicated team of musically skilled volunteers who are happy to provide instructional support.

Maybe you’re just looking for a place to practice on your own – that’s cool, too! We’ve got loads of space for participants to spread out and do their thing!

As a drop-in program, students can drop in at any time between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm and there is no obligation to attend week to week. Snacks and drinks are provided, and we wrap up each session with pizza, courtesy of Inglewood Pizza.
