Ella, Scat & Math


 "Ella, Scat, & Math" is a delightful way for young students to explore math through jazz music, visual art, call and response, rhythmic exercises and scat singing. This interactive musical journey will introduce students to historic jazz icon and scat singer, Ella Fitzgerald.


Math concepts such as counting, addition, and subtraction will be represented by Ella photos as well as simple scat sounds and syllables.
