    Saw an ad for 'Jam Hub' in the latest Music Teacher magazine. The YouTube demo video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6u_zg54Ar0 looks good, but wondering whether anyone has/uses this product?
    Good quality? Easy to use? Other comments?

  3. Went to the Roland Conference at Walsall College a few months ago and got to play with one in a band. They're absolutely fantastic, well worth the money BUT to get the best out of it I would argue that you need an electronic drum kit.
    Looking to try and get the drum kit and the jamhub as we are moving into band mentoring for KS3...it's a big outlay and I don't think my head will go for it, neither do I have enough in the budget for both this year, but if you don't ask...!
     
  4. Hi Silverfern. I'm a teacher that was that blown away by the JamHub I set up a company to help take the product to the educational market. We've developed a project across the UK in primaries, secondaries and further ed where all are using JamHubs. They are universally loved. Have a look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHbwK_-dNYQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player. One of our sites in Wales.

    Dependant on where you are in the country we could probably sort you with a visit to a site who are using the products. Also have a look at the Facebook page called JamPod community. That's where a lot of current users in the UK share knowledge and best practice.

    Please do get in touch, I d love to help you more. Email is Dan@mixmusiceducation.co.uk
     
  5. Hey MT Reading. I was at that event too. JamHubs are outstanding but they don't have to be financially restrictive. My company has developed a program where if appropriate the gear pays for itself. Have a look at the attached video from a high school in Wales. The headteacher saw so much potential he invested in what you see if the video which will actually earn the school money whilst providing amazing resources for the music department through the school day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHbwK_-dNYQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    If I can help you at all with information that will help pursuade your head to invest in a Hub and a kit please do get in touch. I'm a teacher myself who has seen first hand the long term benefits of working with JamHubs educationally.
    I was so impressed I set up a company to help other teachers engage. My email is Dan@mixmusiceducation.co.uk.
