This multimedia jazz appreciation kit is based on Jazz at Lincoln Center's popular Jazz for Young People™ concert series. Designed primarily for upper elementary and middle school students, it is also well-suited for high school and college music appreciation, introduction to jazz, and music education courses. The curriculum explores core concepts -- including improvisation, form, style, and swing -- and major figures in jazz through accessible, interactive lessons. Because it was written for both musicians and non-musicians, the Jazz for Young People Curriculum is perfect for any teacher who wants an entertaining and structured way to bring jazz into the classroom.
