JAFSP  Music Education in Jamaica


All trips of the Jamaica Field Service Project include music education students from across the US. These university students work under the supervision of NYS certified music educators and professors. Our music students provide instruction and donations of instruments to the primary and basic schools of Jamaica, establishing ongoing music program in rural schools, which otherwise could not afford music education. University students train extensively before and during their trip, preparing for their work in the schools. With over 40 hours of contact time, students may arrange to receive academic, practicum, or observation credit from the State University of NY or through their home university.

Music of Jamaica...

Program participants also experience the music of Jamaica, with a strong emphasis on the traditional Afro-Caribbean drumming, reggae, ska, and mento music that is such a large part of traditional Jamaican culture. In addition, the JAFSP often constructs recording studios on site and in the community, where interested students can assist recording local musicians, under the supervision or experienced recording engineers and instructors.
