Junior Appalachian Musicians program accepting students

Written by 

The Haywood County Arts Council will hold registration for students wishing to enroll in the Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) program from 3:30-5 p.m. on Sept. 18 at Canton Middle School.

JAM instructors will be on hand to assist beginning students with their choice of instrument study. Instruments are available for rental from Strains of Music in Waynesville. Classes meet on Tuesdays from 3:30-5 p.m. beginning Sept. 25 at Canton Middle School.

The JAM program is designed for children in 4th grade and higher who want to learn old-time mountain music. Students will be taught banjo, fiddle, or guitar. A string band class is offered to advanced students by instructor referral only. Students in adjoining counties may participate on a space available basis.

Lessons are $90 per child for the school year and fees must be paid in advance.

The North Carolina Arts Council, a division or the Department of Cultural Resources, supports this project with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
