Perfect for the general music classroom, community jazz education courses and beginning jazz ensembles. Directors can adapt for band instruments, providing a hands-on approach to historical context that makes jazz relevant to your students. This easy-to-present resource is designed for a teacher who may or may not be trained in America’s art form—bringing jazz to the next generation.
