Junior Academy of Music 1&2 Christmas Concerts


JAM 1 is for children aged 4 to 7, and consists of a Music and Movement class and a Children's Choir. Music and Movement is designed to introduce young children to various ways of performing and listening to music. The sessions involve lots of singing and rhythmic games, playing various tuned and untuned percussion instruments - all of which will, within time, improve a child’s intonation, sense of rhythm and pulse. It is a fun activity during which they learn basic musical elements. The Children's Choir will promote further their musicianship and team-working skills. The JAM 1  programme is also of benefit for children who wish to start playing an instrument when they are more experienced. 


JAM Two programme

JAM 2 is for 5 to 8 year olds, and involves a Musicianship class, Children's Choir and optional beginner instrumental tuition. JAM 2 is suited to those children who have completed the JAM 1 programme, or possibly other specialised music activities. 

It includes singing and rhythmic games, playing glockenspiel and other tuned/unturned percussion instruments which help prepare children for more advanced studies.  The focus of the Musicianship class is to develop music literacy: to learn how to sing, write, create, read and play music. Through fun activities, children extend their musical skills and refine their listening and performing abilities. This equips them for learning how to play an instrument. Children's choir offers more opportunities to develop, improve and enjoy singing. Instrumental tuition is optional and will be introduced through taster sessions in term 1 and developed during the second and third terms of each year.
