Painting of Jazz Performers

As we continue through the month of April, Jazz Appreciation Month, 2nd and 3rd graders can learn about Scat Singing.  You can sing along with these fun YouTube videos:

The Scat Song   (by DreamJamWorld)     and        

Sesame Street - Hoots the Owl teaches scat singing

I hope you enjoy singing along with these songs.  You will see that scat singing is similar to the nonsense words you use to learn reading.  Scat singing uses nonsense words that are fun to sing, and make your voice sound like an instrument, like a trumpet or a saxophone.

Let me know how you enjoy scat singing!  Send me an e-mail:
