April is Jazz Appreciation Month!!







Visit the National Museum of American History’s website for 112 Ways to Celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month!

Hare are some of my favorite suggestions that the site had to offer:

Check out the jazz offerings or find your local NPR station, on the web site www.npr.jazz.org.

“Take your son or daughter to hear “live” jazz. One under-looked possibility: the jazz band of your local high school or college.”

“Suggest your child log onto to www.SmithsonianJazz.org, to www.ArtsEdge.kennedy-center.org, or another child-friendly jazz site. If you live within driving range of a jazz exhibition (such as the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, in Washington, D.C.), jazz museum (such as the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City), jazz home (such as Scott Joplin‘s house in Saint Louis) or jazz park (the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park), take your children there.”

“Read a jazz-related poem–such as those in The Jazz Poetry Anthology, edited by Sascha Feinstein and Yusef Komunyakaa or their The Second Set: The Jazz Poetry Anthology, Volume 2.”
