Hands-on Jazz Education

Feb 4, 2014

  Learning by doing is a time-tested educational technique. It was put into practice for a group of Santa Rosa middle school students Tuesday, in a hands-on master class with the Metta Quintet, a visiting jazz band from New York.

The animated jazz giants featured in the program were (l-r) Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk.
