The Young Jammers Scholarship Program is about to start a new session in 2018. The program will start in January and continue through May. Applications will be available January 1 online at ffotm.org/young-jammers and are due no later than January 15.
The purpose of the Young Jammers Scholarship Program is to afford aspiring and deserving young musicians between the ages of 8-18 with an interest in studying guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, bass or violin the opportunity to do so. Former Young Jammers participants are encouraged to apply. Loaner instruments are available from FFOTM if needed. There will be 6 scholarships available for the January – May 2018 session.
This session, playing with other musicians, or jamming, will be afforded to students who are accepted into the program. Three jams are scheduled for the upcoming session at Arizona Music Pro, 2pm – February 25, April 29 and May 27, with the final jam being open to the public. Students and parents who are unable to commit to attending at least 2 of these scheduled jams are requested to forego applying until the next Young Jammer session, which will start in the fall. Once accepted, students will receive $300 worth of lessons at either the Flagstaff School of Music or Arizona Music Pro.
In addition to attending a minimum of two jams, completion of lesson logs, to be completed by the student and instructor after each lesson, will be required. These lesson logs will be submitted to the FFOTM Young Jammers Committee upon completion of studies.
