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.


Residencies range in price, from $2,000 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
• A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
• A required orientation meeting and planning session
• A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
• A student culminating or sharing event
• An evaluation meeting
