The Alan Jones Academy of Music or “AJAM,” is a unique music education system. It’s a place where dedicated people have the opportunity to learn not just about music, but also what it means to develop as a creative human being. Founded in 2007 by Drummer, Composer and Berklee alumni Alan Jones, AJAM sets itself apart with program offerings designed to engage and follow musicians from youth through the end of their days, and in the process build a strong foundation of knowledge based on the pillars of rhythm, melody, harmony and tone. AJAM provides an environment for students to take both weekly private lessons AND play in an ensemble. Those that take advantage of this multi-dimensional approach progress exponentially in their musicality, and are able to use the theoretical and practical studies learned in their private lessons immediately in a real world ensemble setting. The back and forth blending of weekly private and ensemble lessons is the ideal way to work at AJAM and differentiates the Academy from other music learning systems. There are no “courses,” no “terms”… musicians at AJAM form ongoing, long-term relationships with both their instructors and their fellow musicians, allowing the development of free flowing thought and ideas and providing a place of community for its participants.
