The JAM Program Model: JAM is an after-school program for children grades 4–8 and beyond that introduces music through small group instruction on instruments common to the Appalachian region, such as fiddle, banjo and guitar. Each JAM program is individually operated and funded. By affiliating with the JAM organization, each program is eligible to receive support and resources for free, and is licensed to use “Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM)” to identify their traditional music education program.



The Floyd JAMs program is a Crooked Road/JAM program held once per week for students grades 4–12 at the June Bug Center in Floyd on Monday afternoons from 3:30–5:30. Students from Floyd Elementary, Indian Valley Elementary, Check Elementary,Willis Elementary and Floyd High School are eligible for classes in fiddle, guitar, and claw hammer banjo.
