Patrick's jazz stylings show how your youngest students can improvise too! Classic Orff process added to some cool jazz riffs in arrangements of children's rhymes and original tunes makes this book a perfect addition to your classroom library.
This book is about improvisation. The medium is elemental jazz. Some pieces are simplistic; some require more skill. Some are stage worthy; some are simple improvisation activities. All pieces provide improvisation opportunities for elementary school children.
