JAMM students develop their roles as citizens by entering into the community and bringing live music to a host of venues. Some of these performances include "informances", which are meant to inform JAMM parents and teachers of all the students have accomplished in each 7-week session. Please enjoy the informance playlists and the videos of other performances in the community, found below! And please visit our YouTube channel, Juneau, Alaska Music Matters!
