Jazz Appreciation Month (fondly known as JAM) takes place every April to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary history and heritage of jazz music.
What Is The Purpose Of JAM?
JAM encourages people of all ages to participate in jazz and highlights the importance of jazz as one of America’s earliest art forms. JAM is celebrated globally by schools, organizations, and governments by providing free concerts and educational events.

2 JAM Themed Prize Draws
In addition to our live seminars on YouTube, we are hosting 2 JAM themed prize draws with lots of great prizes up for grabs.
1:1 Lesson Bundle Giveaway
This giveaway is just for our registered students. Each Friday in April from 4/8 to 4/29, we are giving away a free bundle of three x 1:1 Zoom teaching sessions with our team of teachers.
All students with an active PianoGroove subscription are entered into the draw for this giveaway so there’s nothing you need to do on your side.
The first winner will be announced here in the community area this Friday 8th April, and then each subsequent Friday throughout the month.
The winners can choose which teachers they would like the 3 lessons with, and I will do my best to make it happen. For sure myself, Tuomo, and Jovino will be available.
JAM Prize Draw Giveaway
We are also hosting a prize draw giveaway that is open to everyone. There are 18 prizes in total up for grabs which are:
3 x Annual memberships to PianoGroove
5 x 1 month memberships to PianoGroove
10 x Access to a single course of your choice
The 18 winners will be selected at random and announced on the 30th April which marks International Jazz Day 2023.
If you already have a PianoGroove subscription and you are one of the winners, your subscription will be extended accordingly.

I hope everyone will join PianoGroove in celebrating Jazz Appreciation Month by tuning in to our live streams, and spreading the word of JAM and our live events hosted on YouTube.
