The Higher Education courses held at Jam Academy are built to help everyone who intends to study music in a serious, professional and in-depth way.

The Bachelor of Arts in Contemporary Pop Music is based upon the models of the most advanced music schools in the world. Its main goal is to achieve a thorough and all-around preparation of the students, extending from the core techniques on the instruments to the study of musical theory and harmony, ear training, complementary piano, sight reading, critical listening, live music performance, interplay and so on. Our teaching and learning method is base upon a revolutionary use of the body as the main instrument in the music performance (Music Aptitude Development system). Our focus is to practice music making and live performance, having the chance to do so with some of the most proficient musicians and music teachers in Italy.
