JAM - not the sweet conserve served on toast - but a group of musicians, is travelling regional Queensland to share the art of music in schools.

Recently JAM spent three days visiting parts of the Highlands, to discuss what the group would focus on while here for two weeks in July.

“All principals and schools are excited and were enthusiastic and helpful,” JAM project manager Mike Thomas said. “It’s been awesome, we have been inspired by the community and students, they soak it up and are extremely keen.”

The feedback they received was to focus on song writing, percussion and world music smorgasbord, music technology and instrument construction.

“We are finding a lack of access to music education throughout the region and we are hoping to address that,” he said. “They all deserve the opportunity to learn music as part of their education.”
