    Junior Artists Music Mentorship Educational Program (JAMM) Overview

    Music education fosters the development of critical thinking skills and the necessary confidence and tools for self-expression. The social benefits of the arts, both to children and adults are well documented.

    Our JAZZ.FM91 Artists Music Mentorship educational program (JAMM) focuses on developing innovative ways to actively engage communities with music. JAMM is supported by musicians, educators, and volunteers who dedicate their time to teach and entertain students each year by providing expertise and guidance while creating a positive environment to help participants find their musical confidence and voice.

    Thanks to our generous donors and sponsors, each year thousands of enthusiastic participants and emerging artists gain experience in music and broadcasting through one of our JAMM programs that include:

    Youth programs
