Meyers and Kindred warmed the kids up on music in general, their occupations as professional musicians, and of course, then they played some really great jazz. They discussed and demonstrated American Jazz from the early 20th century, improvised on some familiar melodies to demonstrate improvisation, and related playing music in terms that the class picked up on and appeared to enjoy.
