JammingOut: Platform for Jammers

Story:

I am an engineer by trade, but I have been playing guitar for over 50 years, and started singing in the last 20 years. I've met a lot of people who would love to participate in making music in some fashion, but did not have the time or tools to create the kind of network it takes to get that opportunity. Currently, jams are still run with paper and pencil, and mostly word of mouth. So I started designing a digital solution for a jam sheet, when I realized that I could design a platform that would allow all people to get to the next level in their musical journey. One of the greatest joys of playing music is the experience of playing with others. JammingOut will allow beginners to get started and pros to optimize their time and efforts. I've been thinking about this for the last 20 years, and I have conceived the tool that will change a lot of lives. I am ready to create that tool with the help of the universe. I hope you can share this dream with me.
I met people who owned instruments but didn't know how to begin their journey. I met musicians who didn't know why they were doing what they did. JammingOut will take a profile and offer people options to progress to the next level. It will allow all levels of musicians to optimize their jamming opportunities, similar to how ride-sharing and space-sharing apps optimize matching needs with assets. ​Those of us who can't commit the time necessary for lengthy practices or unorganized jams shouldn’t have to give up the joy of playing music with others. There is an entire culture of musicians who jam for the pure fun of it, for the practice, for the love of making music. And we deserve a networking platform too!

JammingOut is a new platform that helps search for and connect with beginner, hobbyist, and professional musicians in your area. JammingOut offers the most comprehensive and granular database of members, allowing people to search for exactly who they need. Whether you’re a beginner trying to learn how to play the guitar, or a professional musician looking to coordinate a live session at the highest level, JammingOut offers the tools to do so.

JammingOut empowers musicians with the smarter use of data, allowing them to make the most informed decisions. Members create a profile that provide their location, bio, instrument, skill-level, favorite genres, etc. It also provides a search engine that allows for filtered searches to find the perfect musician(s) for your specific needs. JammingOut provides a scheduling and messaging tool, eliminating the need for group-texts and emails, and making it every musician’s one-stop shop.
“One of the most important ways we advance the musical application world’s mission is by providing a platform that allows for even the most novice of musicians to come together and make a joyous sound. Our target audience is...everyone” said Doyle Thomas, CEO, JammingOut.

JammingOut is not just another musician seeking musicians’ site because it targets developing musicians and allows them to coordinate with other beginners, allowing them to reach the next level together. JammingOut will provide intermediates a portal for exercising their musical talent without the commitments of being in a band (practicing, moving gear, etc.) With JammingOut you can schedule a jam, walk in, play, and walk out.

Traditional sites for musicians seeking musicians are intimidating and virtually useless for true beginners. JammingOut bridges the gap to allow those people that have had that guitar in their closet for years, or who used to play in a band in high school, etc. and allows them to play what they know, and to learn what others know in an enriching environment.
