Our Jam Sessions utilize collaborative music making to encourage adult participants to engage and connect through actively making music. In Jam Sessions, Mainly Mozart brings together classical repertoire played by the acclaimed Hausmann Quartet, and the music for wellness activities of the music therapy organization Resounding Joy, led by internationally recognized expert in the field, Barbara Reuer, PhD.
The Hausmann Quartet serve as mentors and coaches to oversee lively jam sessions which engage participants in positive, creative music making while responding to the participants’ musical experience. Instruments used include rain drums, paddle drums, buffalo drums, tambourine, djembe, doumbek and versa drums with acoustic boxes, boomwhackers and egg shakers, as provided by Mainly Mozart. No prior musical experience is required from participants.
The Jam Sessions program runs from February through June 2016 and includes ten one-hour meetings.
