Jazz Appreciation Month!

April is Jazz Appreciation Month! Do you enjoy Jazz music? Be sure to share it with your kids!

We have been experiencing several Jazz styles in class- from Swing to Vocal Jazz, from Bebop to Big Band. Featured artists included: Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, and Miles Davis! Jazz is 'where it's at!'

I shared the following website with our 4th grade classes: www.nafme.org
The National Association for Music Education website is featuring a cool Jazz education series, including short, informative clips from drummer Bryan Carter and his band. We viewed the videos on Improvisation and Swing. It was hip and happenin'!
