Followed by an optional Free Jazz Concert at HWB Scout House
New Princeton High School "Grid Room" (Enter at Door #30)
Friday, November 7, 2014 6:30-8:30 PM**

This class will examine the development of jazz music from its beginnings through the
1940s. Geo-political and social issues associated with Jazz music will be explored
through listening to and discussing music from different eras, styles and artists. The
class will include audio and video recordings to illustrate the stylistic differences and
development of field hollers, spirituals, early American folk music, blues, piano styles,
traditional jazz (i.e., Dixieland), and swing. The course is designed to foster an
understanding of the social conditions that contributed to the history of Jazz music in the
first half of the 20th century and to develop a greater appreciation of this original
American art form. The incredible Timothy Smith travels back to Cincinnati from the
greater Washington D.C. area. From 2001 through 2011 Mr. Smith served the Princeton
City School District in Cincinnati Ohio as a band director, Director of Jazz Studies, and
High School Music Department Head. His knowledge of music and jazz is legendary and
he is currently pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in Music Education degree from George
Mason University in Fairfax, VA. **Following Timothy Smith's presentation, at 9:00PM
there will be a Free Jazz Concert located at The HWB Scout House (see listing below).
You must register for this event but it is a free concert.
