JAMS stands for the Just and Accessible Music School!
We are JUST, because we provide fair rates to teachers and students alike in a non-exploitative environment, and try to listen to voices from all backgrounds in music. Teachers collectively own the business, and we make decisions as a board, democratically. We acknowledge the stigmatization and oppression faced by marginalized communities, and we welcome teachers and students of all identities to work and learn with us in a safe environment.
We are ACCESSIBLE, because we offer lessons online, which allows students from all over the world to learn music with qualified teachers. We offer financial aid to students of low-income backgrounds through a sliding scale option as well as sponsorships, which will be implemented shortly after JAMS launches. We can also offer specialized lessons for students with disabilities, because we believe music learning is for everyone!
