by Donna Dirksing and Cathy Blair.
Use jazz elements in your teaching to introduce America's own art form and to give students another palette of sounds to use. With the goal of introducing improvisation, this gives a step-by-step Orff pattern of speech to body percussion to singing and playing.
Three sections—Jazz is Rhythm, Jazz is Melody, and Jazz is Form—and more than a dozen arrangements, many with both demo and accompaniment on CD means your kids will do a lot of playing, so let them groove! Gr. 2-6.
