This Prezi project is a history of American Big Band music. We explore the genre from its beginnings in the early 20th century, to modern day Big Bands .
I designed this lesson to be a visual suppliment to the audio podcast I recorded on the same subject. They are both to be used for a unit on Jazz History in a high school jazz band, or even a concert band.
By the end of this lesson students will have a basic knowledge of the history and evolution of the genre of Big Band music.
This project supports many of the 'Connect' components of the new National Standards, tying musical learning to cultural learning
