It’s not often that children and older adults play music together in a large group setting. In fact, some children may not interact at all with senior citizens to whom they aren’t related. Guitar teacher Nathan Dillon wanted to change that, which is why he organized the Intergenerational Jam. At the jam, Dillon leads his students of all ages. He doesn’t refer to them as children and adults, but as “little people” and “big people.” Big and little people sit together, sharing music stands and sheet music, occasionally giving tips or asking questions about the songs in which they are uncertain. The little people play guitars or ukuleles; scattered among the big people are an electric bass and a few mandolins.
