Live music is an experience and there is nothing like live music by professional musicians to help students discover the sounds and feelings that music can provide.
The Jazz in Schools residencies offer schools the experiences of creativity and curiosity within structured, multi-visit presentations that engage your school community in learning. The curriculums are based on the content standards for the State of Ohio, delivered with 21st century teaching methods and are intended to make connections between fine arts, English language arts, math and social studies.
Each residency consists of an advance visit for professional development for teachers, student engagement in the classroom and a community performance that provides opportunities for friends and families to celebrate the students’ accomplishments. The students experience skilled musicians who mix performance, interactive clinics and collaborative experiences with the students.
