About Jazz Alive

The mission of CJP’s Jazz Alive Program is to institute music learning at the beginning of a student’s formal education by providing a linear track of music instruction and enrichment from kindergarten through high school. The program follows a steady progression of music instruction that focuses on basic music theory including notation and rhythm, elements of music, improvisation, and life skills such as communication, team work and self-motivation. This is accomplished through active listening and participation using a variety of instruments. Ensemble instruction is also provided in Jazz Band, Jazz Choir, Drum Line, Hand Chimes, Strings, and Guitar.

"By building music programs and jazz bands at the elementary level, we can effectively improve the quality of CPS high school bands all around and can demonstrate involvement in music keeps our children focused and in school.”

-Orbert Davis

JAZZ in AMERICA: The Program

JAZZ in AMERICA: The Program

The mission of the “Jazz in America” program is to present music education that “meets students where they are” emotionally, culturally and academically. By connecting everyday life and music, students discover the emotional effects of music through perceptive listening, critical thinking and creative participation. Using a well-integrated standards-based curriculum, “Jazz in America” stresses the connections of music with other disciplines. This is process-centered and activity-based learning. The goals of the “Jazz in America” educational series are to increase jazz knowledge and awareness for high school students and to demonstrate the connection of jazz with American society. At-risk, gifted and talented high school youth are targeted for participation in the ‘Jazz in America” program.
