Jazz Time!

Early Childhood Jazz Performance Series

jazz musicians perform for a group of young children in the trust arts education center

 

Dates for the 2019 spring series are now available! Register here or email Sarah at hamilton@trustarts.org to learn more.

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is excited to welcome you for a morning of jazz! Children will engage with local talented musicians as they learn about the instruments, styles, and elements that make jazz music so unique. This musical performance, with story created by Anqwenique Wingfield and music and lyrics by Douglas Levine, presents children with a wonderful introduction to jazz led by professional musicians.

You and your students will begin the show with Grandma Rose as she reminisces about the good old days when she was a popular vocalist with a band of the finest musicians. Then through the magic of time travel she awakes to music being played by her old band! Now reunited, they sing the old songs that taught her all about jazz music. Songs that explore tempo, dynamics, melody, improvisation and more!

Use this visitors guide as a social story for your students coming to the performance!

Enjoy the songs from the performance!
