Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Oldenburg Arts and Cultural Community's Jazz Learning Project's goals are 1) to recognize the origins of jazz music, 2) to understand the musical elements and creative expression found in jazz, and 3) to appreciate the relationship between jazz and American culture as well as the global jazz diaspora. The OACC Jazz Learning Project's desired outcomes are for students to understand music in relation to history and culture; to develop skills in listening to, analyzing, describing and evaluating music and musical performances; to explore playing instruments in solo and ensemble settings; and to understand the relationships between music, the other arts and disciplines outside the arts. Participants in the OACC Jazz Learning Projects three components - the Kids Jazz Playground, Jazz Clinics, Evolution of African American Music curriculum - will have improved musical skills, a greater appreciation of this art form, a deeper understanding of jazz musical concepts and the cultural context of jazz as measured by before and after assessments and willingness to refer others to future Oldenburg Arts and Cultural Community programs. Participants' advice and recommendations for strengthening the Jazz Learning Projects will also be sought, and the Project Director and instructors will adapt the Learning Projects and future OACC programs based on their input.
