Jazz Teaching Kit

From the initial preparations all the way to the final performance, the “Jazz-Go-Central, Jazz-Go-Fringe” project lasted almost three years, and now it has come to an end. To pass on the jazz spirit, education programmes are especially important. As well as a series of master classes, JazzSpeak events, open rehearsals and jazz demonstrations, we also organised two phases of the Jazz Youth Internship Scheme to spark young people’s interest in jazz and deepen their knowledge of this artform. Based on what they learned during the project, they helped to draft this Jazz Teaching Kit, which is being distributed to music teachers in all secondary schools. Our hope is that they’ll add jazz into their lesson plans and encourage students to enjoy jazz concerts, by sharing information about jazz musicians, bands and performance venues in Hong Kong.
This teaching kit is accompanied by live recordings and videos of our finale programme, “Jazz Age II Party”, which was held at the Fringe Club on 30 April, 2019. Special thanks to the bands that participated and agreed to let us use the recordings and videos: the Saturday Night Jazz Orchestra, the Happy-Go-Lucky Big Band, the Voyage Jazz Trio led by Tjoe Man Cheung, the Henry Chung Blues Trio, the Ted Lo Quartet, the Patrick Lui Quartet, Gwat6 Koeng5 with lead vocalist Kylie Choy, and the 432 1 production company led by Thomas Lo, who co-ordinated the live recording, video shooting and post-production work.
