What is JAMS?

JAMS is the Just and Accessible Music School, a Canadian worker co-op created to provide a modern learning experience to students of all backgrounds, identities, and experiences, through online private music lessons. JAMS strives to create a community of teachers and students who are anti-racist in their ideologies and practices, and who are both highly valued members of our music community. We believe music learning, music appreciation, and music performance are vital to sustaining a flourishing culture and can create strong, meaningful bonds between teachers, students, and audiences alike.
