Experience jazz in the music classroom with this swingin' collection designed for kids! Each song is written and arranged in a distinctive jazz style, or groove, while keeping it fun with movement, a singing game or activity – learning music concepts in the process. The music, piano/vocal arrangements and recordings are authentic and true to jazz. You also receive digital access to 3 audio mixes – with vocals, without vocals and with only the second vocal part included (when applicable) – and PDFs of singer parts for projection and reproducible options. Audio files with only the second vocal part recorded provide an opportunity to sing the primary vocal part independently while listening to the second vocal part. Once young singers have the melody in the ear, move to singing without the recorded vocals, or keep it simple and sing along and play. Experience 12-bar blues, scat singing, call and response, improvisation, swing, New Orleans Second Line and more! Above all, have fun and swing! Songs include: Jungle Jazz, Jungle Jam, Five Little Monkeys, Shoo Fly, Miss Mary Mack, I'm So Sorry My Friend/Let's Celebrate, Singing This Song and a 12-Bar Blues in C activity. Suggested for grades 1-5.
