JAM's Core Values
We’re always looking to expand our community with people who are aligned with our 3 core values.
We are All-Encompassing and Inclusive:
We include people of all backgrounds, ages, (dis)abilities, skill-levels and musical interests in our community.
We are Curious and Engage in Meaningful Music-Making:
Our musicians and teacher-researchers discover their own potential as musicians and professionals. We make way for new educational pilots and give our musicians and teacher-researchers the space the develop innovative ways to learn and teach music. We aim for high quality in terms of pedagogical practice, research, and musicianship and critically reflect on our practices.
We are Open to All Musicians and Musics:
We consider all students and teachers as equal musicians and aim for collaborative learning, teaching, and co-creation of knowledge. Our community values musical and music educational traditions and conventions, but also flexibly adapts and challenges the existing practices and approaches.
