Open Jam Sessions
Member-Only Open Jam Sessions
To encourage interaction between members, we help members bring what they’re learning in their individual lessons to our private, open jam sessions. We hold these sessions regularly in our main jam room and members frequently work together to schedule time to play together. These sessions are empowering, organic, and a lot of fun. Members typically submit in advance a list of songs they’d like to play. We map out the songs, and have our staff back members up on guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and vocals when needed. Of course, beer is on us.
Before I became a member of Altered Stage, I checked them out at one of their shows and I couldn’t believe what was happening on stage. Students, of all levels and ages, playing with professional musicians, multiple songs, great venue like a real gig… and they totally rocked! What a fun opportunity!
I signed up right away. My initial goal with lessons was to be able to sit at a kit, listen to a song and just play along, or jam with other musicians by ear. I’m definitely headed there with his teaching and encouragement, I’ve gained a ton more confidence as a drummer…Altered Stage also has an incredible space for lessons, jams and just hanging out with the crew…kick back with a beer and tunes or rock out in a soundproof room. It’s pretty awesome.
By joining AS, I’ve become a member of a community of great people. Not knowing anyone when I moved to this city 8 months ago, I feel really fortunate to have found them. I’ve made friends here and I look forward to many jams with them!
