The Alan Jones Academy of Music or “AJAM,” is a unique music education system. It’s a place where people who are dedicated to their art have the opportunity to learn not just about music, but also what it means to develop as a creative human being.
Instruction for All Ages
AJAM provides group and individual music education programs for all ages and all skill levels. Whether you’re a parent wishing to provide a musical and intellectual head start for your child, a high school student wanting to get to the next level of skill in order to win that college scholarship, a working musician wanting to push their personal boundaries and make a lasting contribution to the music world, a professional or a retiree wanting to recapture the joy of playing in a group and making great music, AJAM has a program for you.
Founded in 2007 by Drummer, Composer and Berklee alumni Alan Jones, AJAM sets itself apart with program offerings designed to engage and follow musicians from youth through the end of their days, and in the process build a strong foundation of knowledge based on the pillars of rhythm, melody, harmony and tone.
Group and Individual Instruction
AJAM provides an opportunity (environment) for students to take both weekly private lessons AND play in an ensemble. Those that take advantage of this multi-dimensional approach progress exponentially in their musicality, and are able to use the theoretical studies learned in their private lessons immediately in a real world ensemble setting. The back and forth blending of weekly private and ensemble lessons is the ideal way to work at AJAM and differentiates the Academy from other music learning systems.
AJAM offers beginning, intermediate and advanced private instruction on all instruments including private lessons focused on theory/harmony, composition, singer/songwriting and individual improvisation.
There are no “courses,” no “terms”… musicians at AJAM form ongoing, long-term relationships with both their instructors and their fellow musicians, allowing the development of free flowing thought and ideas and providing a place of community for its participants.
