Today, our students discovered that Jazz is more than just a basketball team! 🏀
Jazz is a uniquely American music genre with its roots deeply intertwined with the vibrant musical traditions of New Orleans, Louisiana.
We learned important and fun musical concepts such as
Improvisation: The art of spontaneous musical creation.
Swing: That irresistible rhythm that makes you want to tap your feet.
Call & Response: A musical conversation that bridges musicians and listeners.
Scat Singing: The playful vocal improvisation that gives jazz its distinctive flair
Thank you, Hot House West, for bringing the magic of Jazz to Spanish Oaks!
