Finding players for Online Chamber Music:

So other players can find YOU, please edit your ACMP Profile to include the words “JamKazam,” and/or “Jamulus,” or any other platform you are using. The easiest place to put these words is in the field asking you what kind of music you like to play, or in the field asking you what you are looking for.

To find other people who have already done this:

Log into the ACMP website and go to the ACMP Directory

MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE CLEARED ANY DEFAULT INFORMATION IN THE SEARCH FIELDS THAT THE WEBSITE FILLS OUT FOR YOU – ESPECIALLY YOUR GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION (USUALLY YOUR ZIP CODE OR POSTAL CODE. SADLY YOU CANNOT CLEAR OUT THE COUNTRY, BUT CAN CHANGE IT TO WHATVER COUNTRY YOU ARE LOOKING FOR PLAYERS IN)

Below all the search fields that you are leaving blank, click on “Advanced Find”

Then enter the words “JamKazam,” “Jamulus” etc in the “Keyword” search field, and click on the “Find Players” button.
