Introduction to Jazz Curriculum 

The Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge has developed a curriculum guide for ELA and Social Studies teachers to prepare their own classes to experience either of River City Jazz Masters’ two school performances. Download these free materials to integrate jazz music into your own lesson plans and deepen your students’ appreciation of this American art form. Materials are divided by grade level and each include lesson plans, worksheets, a corresponding slide show, link to a Spotify playlist, and track listing. For questions about these materials, please email Director of Education and Community Engagement Leea Russell at lrussell@artsbr.org.
