What is Junior Jammers?
The Junior Jammers program was born out of a simple need: kids need to learn music from a young age, and they need to have fun doing it! More and more evidence surfaces every year confirming the cognitive and developmental benefits of learning music at a young age. Our Junior Jammers program jump-starts the musical journey in a fun and engaging way while providing kids with age-appropriate skills that they will benefit from for their whole lives.
The Junior Jammers Curriculum is Centered Around 4 Fundamental Concepts:
Developing fine motor skills
Teaching retention through repetition
Learning fundamentals of rhythm and pitch
Creating and performing real music
Kids and Parents Love Junior Jammers!
Meet Our Program Manager: Tracey Bengough
Tracey Bengough started playing the piano at age 5 and never stopped. She comes from a long line of musicians and her goal is to spread the joy of music to as many people as possible. Her hope is to inspire a love of music into every family she touches so they can experience the impact of music for life.
Tracey grew up in Texas and studied piano technique with Telchick Studios in Houston, TX. She performed and competed at a very high level, winning various awards throughout her years of piano training. She graduated from Texas State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1990 and then moved to New York City. By day, she worked in Advertising, but by night she continued to work in her passion, composing her own music and playing regularly at the Ronald McDonald house.
Tracey moved to Charlotte, NC in 2001 with her husband John. She has two daughters, Claire and Katie, who bring more music into the home with their own piano and guitar talent. Tracey has spent many hours substitute teaching and volunteering at their preschool and elementary schools. About 8 years ago, she began building her own business teaching private piano lessons to students ages 4-17, along with a few inspired parents! Teaching music to children is the most fulfilling career she could have wished for; watching children advance and blossom into musicians is her greatest pride and joy.
