Headwaters Jam Band – Instrumental Composition & Improv Group


Headwaters Jam Band is an 8 week program dedicated to exploring instrumental improv and composition in a group setting.

This program is for participants aged 13-18 with prior experience with their instrument. The group meets on Thursdays, 5-7pm in the Headwaters East Studio (519 Minnesota Ave NW, Bemidji). The program offers four 8 weeks blocks throughout the year:

April 1– May 27 (no session April 29)

June 3 – July 22

Aug. 5 – Sept. 23

Oct. 7 – Dec. 2 (no session Thanksgiving Nov 25)

The group jams from 5-7pm each evening but participants are encouraged to show up at 5:30 for setup. Participants are required to provide their own instruments and amps (if applicable) with the exception of the drum kit. The program is not genre specific. Each block the different groups will work together to create their own unique sound – all musical aspirations are welcome. The cost to attend is $75/ 8 week block. Advance registration is required – limited spots available. After registering you will be contacted by the instructor to evaluate skill level, speak about instrument logistics, and discuss availability.
