Project Description

Living Jazz: Children’s Project

at Howard Elementary School

Living Jazz Children’s Project has a holistic approach that combines skills-based learning, social and emotional development, and performance. The teaching artists introduce ensemble singing concurrently with information about civil rights leaders, getting students singing and thinking about music as a force for social change. The students perform in school assemblies and have the opportunity to perform as the opening act at the Annual Musical Tribute Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Scottish Rite Center, alongside professional musicians.
