What is KidsJam?

KidsJam is a free early childhood music education program provided to the Boston-area community by the Music Education department at Berklee College of Music. The program runs weekly at Berklee’s Café 939 during the academic year and holds special events in the summer months. It is designed to introduce young children to a variety of musical activities essential to a well-rounded music education. These include singing and sound exploration, moving, playing instruments, creating, listening, and responding to music, as well as learning about a variety of musical concepts and instruments.
