PBS KIDS GO: Chuck Vanderchuck “Something Something” Explosion!
Here’s a chance to explore many different styles of jazz with Chuck Vanderchuck as your guide. Listen to examples of common instruments used in jazz, write some song lyrics and listen to Chuck singing them, and find out the basics of jazz composition with a game that asks you to listen to and identify different jazz beats. After you play each of the mini-games, you can go to the main gig and hear what you’ve learned. Print out some posters, learn about jazz throughout the world, and just listen to some jazz by clicking on the speakers. There’s so much to do just in this section about jazz, but if you are so inclined, you can follow the arrows to learn about other music genres too.http://pbskids.org/chuck/index.html#/jazz
