Playing Well Together
We at Victor Wooten’s Center for Music and Nature believe that jamming is the absolute best tool for improving one’s musicianship. As a child learning to communicate, we spent more time verbally “jamming” with others than we did practicing speaking in a room by ourselves. Since speaking to others is a fundamental key to rapid linguistic improvement, Jam Camp’s primary objective is to help musicians develop better communication skills musically and otherwise.
To explore the art (and science) of jamming, students will spend time learning from (and jamming with) Victor Wooten and other great musicians. With a less intense workload than our other programs and multiple jams happening simultaneously, this three-day camp allows students the freedom to move around to various groups and jam as much or as little as they want. The combination of structured and unstructured time is designed to help keep the students’ minds free, fresh, and inspired.
Don’t be intimidated! Anyone and everyone can jam! Creating music together will be our educational focus!
Some of the topics covered:
How to use our already developed communication skills in music
How to make and keep a one-chord jam interesting.
How to make a jam sound like a well-rehearsed song
How to better support other musicians
How to cover mistakes
When less is more
What makes a “jam band” a “Jam Band”
And Yes, much, much more!
Lots of JAMMING!
