Changing Futures though music
The Jam project is a music making project for young people living in Glasgow. We have been running the Jam project for the last 7 years helping young people build their musical skills. At Glasgow Music Studios, we pride ourselves on providing inclusive music projects for all and inspiring people to create music.
This year we have expanded our Jam Project reach and have been working with over 200 people of all ages in music making, workshops, performances and jam sessions.
We run our projects for people of all ages and abilities and help people to form their own bands. Our team of experienced tutors and sound engineers guide participants through music, from the basics to the final performance.
If you are interested in running a Jam Project for your group/organisation please contact Lynne Howard – lynne.howard@
“The Jam Project allowed young carers to experience music tuition in a creative recording studio environment and to develop their own creative talents. The Jam Project promoted positive team work within the bands and encouraged the young people to share ideas and opinions with adults and other young people – with the knowledge that their ideas would be respected and valued. The Jam Project has provided positive experiences that may shape their future and memories that will last a lifetime.”

“The staff are very supportive and offer a meaningful learning experience within the music industry. Additionally the location of the venue is critical to the success of removing territorial barriers. Subsequently, we have been able to refer many young people who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to access such a learning opportunity”

“We went to Glasgow Music Studios to record a samba piece last November. We were able to meet with Lynne beforehand to talk about exactly what we wanted to do and what we would require on the day. The pupils and staff were made to feel very welcome and we all had a fantastic experience recording the music. The pupils were able to go into the booth to see how the recording equipment worked and the sound technician took time to explain what he was doing and worked with us until we got the sound we wanted! Glasgow Music Studios go out their way to make the recording experience a wholly educational one.”
