Jam sessions are great, especially if you're working with someone who is a higher skill level than yourself. In that situation, it's beneficial to BOTH players (the more advanced and the not so advanced). For the newer musician you're playing with someone whose skills are more advanced than yours, and it gives you a chance to learn from their knowledge and experiences. You can learn a few tricks of the trade if you will. For the more advanced of the two, you have to constantly check and adjust for the more inexperienced musician. Some things that you are used to simply happening (such as harmonizing) you have to actually put an effort into doing.http://www.nyjazzacademy.com/
