Jam Session 101 and Practice Workshop

  • Jul 3, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Bodhi's Basement Bistro

This workshop introduces participants to the skills necessary to more fully participate in a jam session or impromptu music endeavor.


As a beginner's class, this is also a reasonable environment for experienced musicians to gain some practice-time with secondary, less-familiar instruments in a group setting.


Topics of discussion include the basics of song structure and orchestration, communicating song structure to new musicians, and leading a song in a music session.


Practical instruction in playing instruments, note-taking, lead breaks, and fronting a song will be presented.

The aim of this workshop is to give individuals the skills necessary to confidently and fully participate in open jams and other musical endeavors or events.


Please Note:  There is a fee of $5 per session for this 3-hour workshop.

    Hello... My name is Trish. I am from LA and have done a lot of jams so I am pretty comfortable with open jams. Would this gathering be a good fit for me?

    • Trish A. M.

      Hi Rob, Thank you for your reply. I have done many jams in the past so maybe one of the other events would be better for me and thank you for informing me as I am brand new at this. How do I learn of the other events?

      No worries, Trish.
      Simply go to the calendar section and read the description of the various events that we have coming up.

      As it happens, there is no large, public jam session this month (I shall be out of town at a gig, the 1st Saturday of the month, when we usually hold them). However, there is a 4th of July party which you may enjoy, hosted by one of our event organizers, with lots of musician-types. I'm hoping that that particular event satiates our members until next month's jam.
