About 80 Years of Jazz in About 80 Minutes
In this introductory unit, your students will discover four different styles of jazz, hear the sounds of jazz instruments and meet Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker and Miles Davis -- four great musicians who created and shaped this genre. This kit includes an informative teacher's guide, a set of flashcards for review and a CD with "real" instrumental examples. Style By Numbers and Three in a Row are two fast-paced cooperative- learning/whole-group activities that are easy to teach and designed to reinforce the music, musicians and concepts presented.
