History of JCM
Laya Field, a retired musician, began volunteering at Christ Anglican Church in Carefree, Arizona in 2007. Her mission was to start a children’s choir that would sing at services once a month. Very quickly she realized that there was a need for musical instruction for children in the community and has been working to create a program that would include young children to adults. To accommodate all ages and abilities, JCM hosts most of their classes at the Desert Foothills Library in Cave Creek, Arizona.
The Jubilate program began with a few students learning to match pitch on Saturdays. The program has expanded to include classes such as Music Theory, Jubilate Violin Orchestra, Beginning String Ensemble, Advanced String Ensemble, Jubilate Chorus, private lessons for violin, viola, cello, piano, and voice, and a Summer Performing Arts Workshop, bringing students together to learn collaboration through performance.
Jubilate Conservatory of Music classes are traditional. Recitals are small and intimate with a focus on communication. Jubilate teaches the fundamentals of music theory and reading music as well as performance techniques. The intention of Jubilate Conservatory of Music is to enrich the lives of children and young adults, strengthening their hearts and minds through music and thereby support musicians in our community.
