**NEW JAZZ LINK for KIDS**  

Thanks to an email from a youth services librarian running a fun jazz music history class for 7-13 year olds who told us they were able to make use of our Society's jazz links lists and use some of this information for their most recent group project.

One of them, Amelia also asked if she could share the article where she initially became interested in jazz music, "Musical Playgrounds for Kids: The History of Jazz Music", and thought it could be a really fun addition for any other young aspiring musicians.

Please pass this on to family and friends as it looks a great introduction and inspiration for young musicians and enthusiasts of jazz.
