WeJam

What is WeJam?

WeJam is a performance based music program. This program is built for people who want to learn more about making music with other musicians. After letting us know a bit about yourself (musical experience, genre(s) of music you are interested in and age, you will be introduced to a group of similar people with similar interests.

You will be signing up for the experience of collaborating with others along with your music coach on a weekly basis. You will also improve your ear, attack new musical concepts, learn to set up sound and stage, conquer stage presence, and overall, create a great standard of teamwork and musical communication. Minimum of two performances per year.

Who Can Participate?

Anyone! We put you in a group based on your experience so that you are matched up with people that understand where you are at and work at a similar pace as you.

Is it only a "rockband" setting?

No! WeJam is based on the interests of you! You can find opportunities through duos, trios, bands, vocal focused, or any other form of music creation you can think of! This program is made to enhance the love of sharing music with toehrs – no matter the style or the genre.
