Q & A
What is Jambo Music Hub?
Here at Jambo we offer advice for music learners on all aspects of musicianship, and also run music workshops and events in London for all ages and abilities. Our events range from open mic afternoons, blues guitar masterclasses, music summer camps for kids, songwriting workshops, to jazz improvisation classes and many more! At the heart of Jambo is our desire to make learning an instrument fun and engaging. We believe anyone learning an instrument should have the opportunity to get together and play with others! Subscribe to our mailing list for our fortnightly tips on music learning and info for any of our upcoming events.
Our music workshops and events are held in different venues in London. (At the moment mostly North London: Highgate, Muswell Hill, Hornsey and Crouch End.) We pop up anywhere from Church Halls to schools, pubs, studios and open houses.
We also hold a database of teachers in a wide range of instruments.
Who can take part in Jambo workshops and events?
Our events are open to all! We cater for all ages and abilities. Some events are specific to certain levels/ages. If you are interested in finding out more sign up for our events news!
What is your teacher’s database?
We hold profiles of over 150 instrumental teachers who have been interviewed and reviewed by us.
We approve teachers based on their:
Skills as musicians
Teaching methods and experience
Ability to bring out the very best in each student
Ability to engage students
Ability to tailor lessons to students' interests
Do you run a DBS check on listed teachers?
No, we do not DBS check listed teachers.
Where can I purchase/hire an instrument?
There are numerous instrument purchase and hire shops in London. Most are specialists in certain instruments. If you are a total beginner we recommend purchasing a less expensive second hand instrument and upgrading later on. Please contact us and we may be able to help you with specific instruments.
