We love seeing the next generation of Rockers crank it up at the Maine Academy of Modern Music. If you've ever caught one of these young bands play out you'll  hear them play everything from The Doors to Green Day plus their own original songs. .

The Maine Academy of Modern Music's mission is to operate an independent music school focused on rock and roll and is dedicated to creating positive life experiences for Maine students of all ages.

They have cool camps, lessons and an annual Battle of the Bands called MAMM SLAM. It's a long way from the crappy garage bands we had in high school!


According to MAMM: "The Maine Academy of Modern Music’s MAMM Slam is Maine’s premier high school rock off. The MAMM SLAM is designed to provide young, career-minded musicians with an educational platform through which to gain performance and business experience, professional acumen, industry exposure, and promotional and career networking opportunities.

Musicians and their families and friends travel from all corners of Maine to compete against one another for a $1,000 cash prize, studio recording time, professional marketing help, and even scholarships for the new music program at Maine College of Art."
