EDUCATION OUTREACH The goal of the educational component of JAZZ ROOTS is to teach, inspire, and enrich young people through unique active learning opportunities to experience jazz music, both in the concent hall and in the classroom, including the cultural influences that impact this art form. Behind-the-Scenes Experience JAZZ ROOTS will provide music students and their teachers an in-depth look at the "behind-the-scenes" workings of a live sound check and the technical aspects necessary to produce a successful concert. Students will have an opportunity to dialogue with internationally acclaimed jazz musicians about the music, the artistic process and the practical skills needed for a career in the arts.
