What is Jams in July?

Jams in July is a summer version of a winter Instagram music challenge called Jamuary. During the month of January, musicians all over the world challenge themselves to create and post 31 new musical ideas for each day in January - hence the name Jamuary. I’ve been participating in this challenge for 5 years. The past 3 years I have invited my music students to participate as well (although we don’t post them publicly online). Because 31 musical ideas can seem daunting, I only challenge students to bring one new musical idea or, “Jam,” per week. This can be a song with lyrics, an instrumental on the piano, a percussive piece, an electronic piece - really the sky's the limit. 

Jamuary has been so popular with my students that I’ve decided to open it up in July as well. The goal is to just generate new music on a weekly basis during the month of July.
