Family Jams

Family Jams

Family Jams are an event where communities celebrate over music, tea and coffee in an inclusive and free environment.  Aimed at families with young children, these themed sessions include a range of performances and interactive workshops facilitated by professional musicians.  Themes have included Irish Music, Chinese New Year, Black History, Making instruments and Jazz.Funded by Youth Music Family Jams are taking place in a range of venues in Haringey, Enfield, and Waltham Forest.

Due to Covid19 we are reimagining Family Jams. This has included a socially distanced Family Jam in our local neighbourhood and also collaborating with Beanstalk Arts artist Becky Dixon to create this fantastic early years music making home learning resource. The video uses the well known traditional story – Jack and The Beanstalk and takes you on a musical journey throughout the home sharing ideas about how you might create your own musical story journeys in your home too.
