Blues Jams


About The Blues Jams

Join us for a fun, casual jam with sparkling cider at Off the Wall! This is a fun way to learn more theory about chords, blues scales, listening to the musicians around you, and meet new friends your own age.

We'll play through C jam blues, a C minor blues and an A minor blues in a few different styles as well. Until a student sees a band playing and improvising together, they might not understand why their teacher is asking them to practice their chords and scales. Once they see all the pieces coming together, they are more motivated to practice.

For advanced students, we'll pick a different jazz standard for the school to work on every 3 months. Practice it with your private teacher and come prepared to perform it with a few teachers and students.
