An Introduction to Jazz in Music Class

musicblog1musicblog3 musicblog4 musicblog5

Recently in Music class, students in Grade 1 had a ball learning about jazz. They listened to jazz and played along on drums, and they also heard a brief history of jazz and had a chance to talk about what they like about the genre. The most popular activity by far was dancing to jazz. We listened (multiple times!) to “Noodles From Scratch” and moved our bodies any way they told us to. Some students even danced out the part of noodles on the floor! It’s a fun way to get moving during these gray winter days.
