Jazz teaches the importance of mastering scales, chords, articulation and theory. It also stirs up one’s imagination and opens channels of creativity. Music is a science, art, math, and language class rolled into one. When it comes to cross-curricular programming, exercising the whole brain and teaching important life skills -Jazz is uniquely equipped for teaching everything. In short, music ensemble classes are a microcosm of the real world. Musical experiences in childhood accelerate brain development particularly in the areas of language acquisition and reading skills.
Children move naturally. They move to achieve mobility. They move to express a thought or feeling and they move because it is joyful and feels wonderful. We consciously structure this movement in the form of dance. We understand that toddlers/ preschool children do not conceptualize abstract processes. They primarily learn these physical and sensory experiences. Thus, learning the art of dance helps young children develop their knowledge, skills and understanding about the world in a better way.
