Jazz in America, Grades 4-6
What is jazz? Where did it come from? Take a journey through the history of America's greatest musical gift to the world with this FREE 8-session webinar series.

Jazz is recognized around the globe for its rich cultural heritage rooted in the African American experience. For over one hundred years, jazz has been an important part of American culture. Many people consider it to be the only truly original American art form! Today, jazz is appreciated and performed by people all over the world, and has helped inspire many other forms of music, including hip-hop and rock.

Jazz in America is the first ever internet-based jazz curriculum for social studies, American history and general music classes. Developed by the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz, the curriculum aims to provide students with a basic understanding of jazz as a musical form, along with an appreciation of the profound contributions jazz has made to America's cultural and civic life.

The virtual presentation of Jazz in America is made possible through the generous support of AT&T.
