Call and Response

The Scat Singing for Kids teacher's guide contains a detailed step-by-step process that creates a 'safe zone' and leads the most insecure student to uninhibited scattin' fun! Scat singing is the easiest way for kids to begin developing their jazz chops, but singing nonsense syllables as a soloist can be unnerving. Freddie the Frog and the Flying Jazz Kitten storybook introduces kids to scat singing. This teacher's guide extends the learning with group scatting, flashcard instruction, scatting partners and classroom rhythm instruments.
