Narrated with warmth and humor by Wynton Marsalis, the Jazz for Young People Curriculum will help introduce listeners of all ages to this uniquely American art form. Though primarily intended for 4th–9th grade students, the lessons contained in the multimedia kit are adaptable for general music education, high school and college-level courses such as music appreciation or introduction to jazz, by and for musicians and non-musicians alike. Covering core jazz concepts such as swing, form, style and improvisation, the accessible, interactive lessons, with audio examples and included activities, can be divided into individual units or taught as a semester-long program of study.
Each curriculum kit includes:
- A 10-CD set (including one CD-ROM) of music performed by the LCJO and special guests.
- An in-depth Teaching Guide
- A set of 30 Student Guides
- A behind-the-scenes video
