Jazz for the Teach

Has your scat gone flat? Is your cadence feeling less than perfect? If you're singing the end of school blues, Toronto Downtown Jazz invites you to refresh your jazz chops in a fun, relaxed setting with Jazz for the Teach.

Jazz for the Teach features interactive sessions geared towards middle and high school music teachers looking to hone their jazz teaching skills. Led each year by seasoned jazz performers and educators, Jazz for the Teach will shed new light on jazz in the classroom, and will help to remove some of the mystique surrounding improvisation, leading a jazz ensemble, and more.

The 2014 edition of Jazz for the Teach features two sessions on Sunday, June 22 at The Paintbox Bistro: from 12-2 pm, a session on jazz fundamentals and small ensemble playing led by Andrew Scott and Lisa Martinelli; from 3-5 pm, a session on big bands led by Paul Read.

Participation in Jazz for the Teach is free but registration is required. Complete registration information will be available soon.
