Neighborhood Jams

The developmental program for Kimmel’s Creative Music Program, Neighborhood Jams allows students with interest and passion for music to learn to play traditional jazz instruments. Group musical sessions will happen online weekly using bucket drums and other instruments the Kimmel supplies to Neighborhood Jams students. During this time, individual lessons will also be scheduled virtually using Zoom. Lessons will incorporate Jazz Standards curriculum.
