In order to support those interested in jamming out or practicing, Girls+ Rock Ottawa is pleased to offer monthly jam sessions at Youth Ottawa (99 Fifth Ave). Jam sessions provide a safe space for self-directed rehearsal time and improvisation. A registered participant can practice with their band, or we can match participants looking to jam with new friends.
The sessions take place once a month on the third Saturday between 1PM and 5PM (unless otherwise noted). One hour slots are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Please note that these are self-directed sessions and not lessons. A Girls+ Rock Ottawa volunteer will be on site to help you get set up and for general questions but is not responsible for providing any guided content or lessons.
These sessions are open to girls, women, femmes, trans, non-binary, two-spirit, and gender non-conforming folk (GWFTNB2SGNC+) ages 13+.
Cisgender men are welcome to participate if they are members of a band in which (GWFTNB2SGNC+) play a significant role.
Entry to our Jam Sessions is on a sliding scale, pay-what-you-can (PWYC) basis.
