Synopsis

JAZZKIDS™- “Performing with a Swing” is an appreciation program enabling the students to understand the fundamentals of vocal jazz and swing dance while teaching the basic skills of performance. In the workshop, vocal training is provided as these students are to sing one jazz tune. They are also taught to scat, which is an important element of jazz.

They will learn that jazz, though structured, allows for much creativity in improvisation. They will be also be taught from listening to recordings, watching videos, as well as taken on excursions to a live performance by professional performers.

The students will experience “live” performances, and have the opportunity to internalise it by actually learning the basic skills necessary to perform one simple jazz song. They finally will evaluate their own performances as well as to critique what they hear. There will be constant discussions on the improvisational aspects of the music.

Questionaires will be given at the beginning and at the end of the course to gauge evaluate their understanding of the genre. The children will also perform the song before a live audience ( teachers) to further understand the performer’s role.
