New Jazz Link Collection - Musical Playgrounds for Kids: The History of Jazz Music

Tracy, a librarian in Salt Lake City, running a fun jazz music history class for 4th-8th grade students used my link information for a recent group project. A young student, Olivia, suggested sharing the article where she initially became interested in jazz music, "Musical Playgrounds for Kids: The History of Jazz Music." Please click on the link, and thanks to Tracy and Olivia for helping to encourage youth to discover this great musical culture.
