'Jamtown' John left the corporate world in 1995 and created a business based on his love for music and adventure travel. Over the years John has helped 1000's of kids and adults make music through interactive, hands-on rhythm events for schools, business and community. And he has helped low-income artisans and their families by paying fair wages, creating long term relationships, and providing other important benefits. After the birth of his daughter (now 6 years) Jamtown John turned his focus on writing and delivering toddler programs through parent/child classes and in day-cares and schools.
At the Music Center you can sample and purchase a wide variety of hand-crafted indigenous musical instruments — everything from djembe drums and marimbas to shakers and flutes from 10 counties. This is also the space used for classes and events.
Jamtown products have been featured on the cover of FAO Schwarz and many other catalogs, and are available for sale at museums, educational catalogs, gift, toy, and music stores around the USA and Canada. In Seattle, visit Top Ten Toys, Planet Happy, Dusty Strings, Fair Trade Winds, &The Drum Exchange to get your musical fix. Jamtown products have won several awards including two from Parent's Choice.
