April is Jazz Appreciation Month!

"I can only hope that one day America will recognize that our indigenous music — jazz — is the heart and soul of all popular music, and that we cannot afford to let its legacy slip into obscurity." — Quincy Jones

Jazz is the art of spontaneity, a genuine testament to the human spirit. It is a music built off of syncopation, improvisation, inspiration, and bended blue notes. It is inherently American, but performed and enjoyed worldwide.

The National Museum of American History has designated April to be Jazz Appreciation Month and encourages educators and students to take an active role in keeping this music and its rich history alive.

Celebrate Jazz!
