At JamSchool, we take a different approach to music lessons.

JamSchool is a performance based music education centre with two locations in Guelph, Ontario.

What’s different about us?

We focus on getting each and every student on stage to perform.
We believe that performance is key to developing a life-long love of music and becoming engaged in music education.

We provide in-person and online private music instruction for all ages:

We offer private music instruction and contemporary band classes.

Our Recording School program also provides hands-on training in the area of music recording and programming.

At JamSchool, our focus is on creating an environment to learn and interact with other students. Regular scheduled performances, give our students the opportunity to take the stage with their peers.

Music lessons are just the beginning.

Embark on a musical journey that transcends traditional lessons. At JamSchool, we strive to propel students of all ages and skill levels onto the stage, igniting a lifelong passion for music. Beyond the conventional approach of instructing students on their instruments of choice, we cultivate a unique experience with performance opportunities for our students. This process empowers them to take charge of their learning journey, building confidence and forging connections with fellow music enthusiasts along the way.

Our commitment to making music accessible to everyone is reflected in our diverse range of teachers and classes, catering to various instruments and age groups. Whether in a group setting or through private lessons, we encourage you to find the perfect fit.

The impact of our teaching extends beyond the classroom, with our students achieving remarkable success in diverse fields. From earning top honours at esteemed musical competitions to pursuing advanced studies in music at the university level, our alumni showcase exceptional talent. Some have even formed bands that secured recording contracts with major labels and had the privilege of opening for well-known artists.

Our students have seamlessly translated their musical training into careers in acting and theatre, securing roles in television commercials and large-scale productions. By instilling a love for music through live performances, the potential for creative and professional growth is boundless. Join us on this transformative musical odyssey!
