Performances for the Schools: Assembly with Charged Particles: Jazz with a Spark!
Performance for the Schools workshop – all grades (private school assembly)
Charged Particles offers a wide variety of educational workshops that bring to life the fun of America’s original musical style: jazz.
Jazz is made up of four building blocks:
– rhythmic grooves (e.g., swing, samba, salsa, funk, shuffle),
– harmony, and most importantly:
The group demonstrates how a melody that all students recognize can sound very different if accompanied by different harmonies or if played over different rhythmic grooves.
The group shows how improvising is at the heart of every jazz concert and how jazz has evolved over its history.
