Jazz It Up!

Themes & Variations


This collection features ten songs by Susie Davies-Splitter and Phil Splitter, Australian music, and jazz educators. Students will sing, improvise and move to these jazzy tunes. The songs use a variety of elements of jazz - call-response, scat singing, improvisation, and rhythm and blues. Activities are provided for each song at a variety of levels so that the songs are appropriate for K-6. Play with the performance/accompaniment recordings, or students can play many of the accompaniments using the provided Orff arrangements.
