video for teaching and learning about Jazz, Piano, Dance

Posted in Video by P. Conrad on January 20, 2013


Joy2Learn is a foundation that’s been around for a while (since 2000) and hosts free video content useful for teachers in visual and performing arts. The founder is the virtuoso pianist Alan Gampel, who also presents the material on piano.

The site currently has “e-presentations” (click on the logo above)  featuring Wynton Marsalis on Jazz, Gregory Hines on Dance, plus Hector Elizondo on Theatre, Elizabeth Murray on painting and Richard Serra on Sculpture.

Each subject includes lesson plans, and teachers’ resources (bibliography, links to other sites). Marsalis’s section has specific lesson plans on jazz in history, composition, and trumpet technique.
