April is Jazz Music Month!!!

Jazz Music is such a great topic to study, it introduces so many different musical ideas in a fun way to young students. This year I have three female vocalists in my Senior class and each one of them has chosen a couple of Jazz pieces to perform in their final exams in September. It is such a pleasure to work on this part of their repertoire because it is great on the vocal cords and allows for a variety of ways to show off what they can do with their voices!

I have a couple of products in my store that will make teaching Jazz Music to young students easy and engaging. I have done the hard work for you, so all you have to do is just print and teach! Below are some suggestions for you to use in your classroom this month.

Jazz Musician Study

If you want a quick and easy way for your students to be engaged with their learning, then this is for you! There are 30 different Jazz musicians to study. Enough for each student to study and learn about a musician that interests them. This research could be completed in as little as a single lesson OR you could stretch it out by having students present to a small group or even the class about what they have learned – the possibilities are endless. The Musician study sheets are designed for students to complete and color in – making for a great display on your classroom walls.

Happy teaching

Julia from Jooya

I am a wife, mother, daughter, friend and High School Music Teacher. I have an understanding husband, two grown up children and one cat. I love the country life, especially as I can look out my back door and enjoy a beautiful view of cows ansd pasture. What is even better is that I enjoy the view without the cost! It's my neighbours' property. I am a classically trained Opera singer, but very rarely sing in that style. I love singing and will gladly sing at the drop of a hat. I play the guitar, although strictly rhythm these days, no solos, and enjoy my Tuesday night African drumming class down the road - it is great therapy! I love working with my students to help them see the best in themselves. I love my job and actually enjoy creating resources for my students.
