    Smile we had all jammed n our own a bit

    Hello. Would you please tell me what the underlined part means in the context below?
    Does it mean "all band members met in the band room in a hurry after school"?
    Thank you.


    from Pluto by R. J. Palacio---------------

    I can't say they were thrilled when John and I first joined the band.
    Not that they weren't nice, but they weren't nice nice. They didn't treat us like we were equal members of the band.
    It was pretty obvious that they didn't think we played as well as they did-and, to be truthful, we really didn't.
    But still, we were trying really hard to get better.
    "So, Mr. B," Elijah said after we had all jammed on our own a bit.
    "We're thinking we want to play 'Seven Nation Army' for the spring concert on Wednesday."
    Mr. Bowles was the after-school rock band adviser.

    In music, to jam means "to play together improvisationally".
