The Symphonic Jazz Orchestra is pleased to announce the addition of Transitional Kindergarten (TK) at Kentwood Elementary, the seventh curricula in our expanding Music in the Schools program. The TK curriculum is focused on singing and movement and teaches the students solfege (do, re, mi) along with pre-reading skills including letter recognition.
We are also back to school in five school districts from Compton to Culver City with Introduction to Music & Percussion, Playing the Bells, Advanced Bells, Bach to Bebop, Music of the World and Music of America curricula.
Your support has allowed us to expand our “Music in the Schools” program to reach more underserved communities across Los Angeles County. Because of you, we can continue to engage and inspire over 4,000 students every week with dynamic programs that integrate and enhance their understanding of math, reading, science, history, and creative writing.
