NOTE Discussion Guide
This guide is intended for students in grades 6-12 who are in the early stages of their musical studies. The experience outlined below will introduce them to basic concepts and vocabulary as they explore four closely related American musical genres, blues, jazz, rhythm & blues, and hip hop. Content is presented in 2 or 3 sessions, each broken into smaller 10 to 15-minute segments designed to allow students to listen and respond to the music they hear. Each session features brief suggested selections from a Playbill that can be accessed via a link in the PDF.
