Learn About Jazz

images-1
Jazz is a genre of music made popular at the beginning of the 20th century! There are lots of different styles of Jazz; Big Band, Swing, Bossa Nova and Cool Jazz, just to name a few. Swing Jazz is a lot of fun because it really makes you want to dance!
Jazz is also really cool because you can improvise. That means sometime when you play a song you can make things up!
Jazz musicians spend a lot of time learning about music so they know what notes to play when they improvise.
You can try improvising yourself by singing- it’s called scatting.
You can hear Melody scatting the Monkey Swing – she is just making it up!
