Description

In Jazzing Up Learning: Hit the Road, Jack, and Learn to Scat! students explore Jazz music by learning an improvisational language skill called “scatting.” Students learn to sing a Jazz melody and take on the social issue of bullying through a lyrical adaptation of “Hit the Road, Jack!” Then students hit the stage and showcase knowledge and skills in a live performance for their peers. A tuned piano is requested.
