Jazz is a type of music that you can dance to with the elements of Jazz. The elements of Jazz are Scat, Improvisation, Call+Response, and syncopation. Today, we will be testing your Jazz skills on these four elements. We will also be teaching you some more things about Jazz.
Call+response is when one instrument in Jazz plays a piece and pauses as a signal for the other instrument to play back. You can also do this with Jazz singing. Lesson 1
Reteach 1 Is this call+response? “ How are you?” “How are you?” Answer Key: Next slide
Answer Key 1 That was not call+response. This would be an example of call+response. “ How are you?” “Great!”
Lesson 2 Improvisation is when a Jazz musician gets to make up their own piece of music on the spot during a music performance.
Reteach 2 When a Jazz musician plays their own made up solo during the middle of a song, would that be improvisation? Answer Key: Next slide
Answer Key 2 Great job! It would be improvisation!
Lesson 3 Scat is kind of like improvisation. The only difference is that it is the Jazz singer that does the improvisation.
Reteach 3 Let's see if you have a good memory, is this scat? Zweebop-a-weebop! Answer Key: Next slide
Answer Key 3 Did you guess yes? If you did, you got it right!
Lesson 4 We have come to our last subject. Syncopation. Syncopation is a sound between a beat.
Reteach 4 Is this syncopation? B=Beat and S= Syncopation. B B S B B B? Answer Key: Next slide
Answer Key 4 No that would not be syncopation. But, this would: B B BSB B B.
