In addition to learning performance techniques, students will also create a band name and logo, Facebook event, pre-sell tickets, and learn what it takes to market their band to draw a great crowd to a venue.


We've played at some of Charlotte's most popular music venues such as Amos' Southend, The Chop Shop, The Double Door, Neighborhood Theatre and Visulite Theatre... just like regional and national bands!  This gives students an opportunity to work with some of the best sound and lights professionals in the Charlotte area, so that they can get the BIG PICTURE of performing like a rock star!

Enrollment for Spring Jam Session '19

has ended.   We will open enrollment for our Summer Jam Session in March, so watch our website for details.

Jam Sessions Tuition


    $289 - Members* + $50 pre-sale ticket fee

    $319 ~ Non-members + $50 pre-sale ticket fee


* A member is a student who is currently enrolled in private music lessons with a Ballantyne School of Music instructor.



​​We also offer additional opportunities for our students to perform at local charity functions, kids fests, and battle of the band events and often collaborate with other rock schools in the Charlotte area, to help students to network with similarly-experienced musicians, so they can establish their OWN bands!

Our Jam Sessions program is known as south Charlotte's BEST, because we show students ages 10 and older how to take what they've learned in private lessons to the next level and make it FUN!  


Students who enroll in Jam Sessions learn how to create a crowd-pleasing set list, develop unique solos to make the song their own, and play dynamically to engage the audience.  It's a true performance workshop, which will take students from "player" to "performer" in 8-9 short weeks!
