Additional Music Opportunities

Musical organizations and on-campus activities are open to all students, faculty, staff and community members.

Old Time Jam

The Old Time Jam Session takes place in room 33 of the Visual and Performing Arts Building at UIS on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 7:00 to 9:30 pm. The session is open to everyone, including those who play the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, and other instruments, as well as those who like to listen. This is an informal playing event with not preset program or tune list. If you are just learning, you are welcome to hang out, listen, follow along, ask questions, and/or observe those who have been at it a little while longer.

Additionally, there is a “slow jam” from 6:00 to 7:00 pm for those interested in learning new tunes at a slower pace.
