Jazz for the Teach

Has your scat gone flat? Is your cadence feeling less than perfect? If you're singing the end of school blues, Toronto Downtown Jazz invites you to refresh your jazz chops in a fun, relaxed setting with Jazz for the Teach.

Jazz for the Teach are interactive sessions geared towards middle and high school music teachers looking to hone their jazz teaching skills. Led each year by seasoned jazz performers and educators, Jazz for the Teach sheds new light on jazz in the classroom and helps remove some of the mystique surrounding improvisation, leading a jazz ensemble and more. The 2016 edition of Jazz for the Teach was presented in collaboration with the Toronto Catholic District School Board: on February 12, 2016 at Dante Alighieri Academy as part of the TCDSB Professional Development Day, we presented one session on jazz fundamentals led by Heather Bambrick and Michael McClennan, and a session on big bands led by Terry Promane.

Participation in Jazz for the Teach is free but registration is required. Complete the online registration form or download the form to submit by mail. fax or email. Please submit your registration by June 13.-->
