KidsJam Workshops are interactive programs that connect kids and families with community teaching artists to learn about the people, cultures, and musical traditions from around the world as they make music, move, and enjoy other creative activities.
PLAY. LISTEN. LEARN. CREATE.
KidsJam workshops are interactive sessions for children ages 5-12 to experience musical performances, get involved through creative activities and movement, and learn about the people, cultures, and sounds behind the music.
All homeschool programs take place on Thursday or Friday mornings at 10:30 am in the Schubert Club Music Museum, Landmark Center, Downtown Saint Paul unless otherwise listed.
KidsJam in the Community
In addition to our programs for homeschool students, we are proud to partner with several area community centers and schools to bring these interactive music workshops to students in after-school programs.
Busy on Thursday and Friday mornings? Check out our new program FamilyJam on Saturday mornings!
