Becky Ogden "Jump For Jazz"

The "Jump For Jazz" music program is a combination of great jazz standards along with songs from early childhood materials that adapt well to the jazz genre. Becky Ogden, an experienced early childhood music educator, has developed activities and songs using the jazz vocabulary that enhance literacy, music, and movement for young children. The audience adds "jazz" to their vocabulary while listening, singing, jumping, reading patterns and even playing instruments. The program is all about the music! The kids, through their participation, are fully engaged listeners.

 

The TRio, a professional jazz group made up of full time career musicians, provides a level of performance usually reserved for adult listeners. The program is an outgrowth of the hugely successful PB&J Jazz Concert series. The program offers three distinct age group designs ranging from pre-school through fifth grade, each specifically targeted for that audience.

 

"Jump For Jazz" is available to any public or private school, including those for developmentally challenged students, churches, civic organizations or community centers for a very nominal fee. The majority of the cost is underwritten through grants and the support of Jazz Arts Group Columbus.

 

If you are an educator, administrator or an interested parent, contact Aaron Scott to learn how to bring this fun and interactive program to your school or organization.
