SouthCoast Health pediatrician: Essential info for understanding autism

1 in 59 American children have autism.

“Unfortunately, many still view autism negatively and those with autism suffer from the biased opinions of others,” said SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Dr. Nelson Elam. “This is largely in part of lack of knowledge. Believe it or not, there’s a lot to learn about autism and from those who may be on the spectrum. The biggest thing to understand is that autism is just another way of living and another perspective in this diverse world.”

To help spur positive conversation about autism during Autism Awareness Month, find the basics of autism here including what is autism; what does ‘On the spectrum’ mean; signs of autism; diagnosis of autism; and what happens after diagnosis.

Savannah-Chatham public school students in online SMF Savannah Jazz Academy concert, April 30

Thursday, April 15th, 2021

Savannah Jazz Academy 2021 music lessons

 

SMF Savannah Jazz Academy

Here’s another reason to support Savannah-Chatham public schools: the SMF Savannah Jazz Academy program.

Savannah Music Festival – a leading nonprofit performing arts organization, recently hosted a music performance featuring more than 25 Savannah-Chatham County Public School (SCCPSS) students on Sat. March 27 at Kehoe Ironworks at Trustees’ Garden in Savannah.

The performance will be broadcast virtually Fri. April 30 at 7PM on Savannah Music Festival’s Facebook page, featuring Savannah-area public school students in grades 5-12 performing jazz standards like “C Jam Blues,” “All of Me,” “Perdido” and “Make Me a Pallet on the Floor.”

Spring Virtual Performance Linkhttps://fb.me/e/2b95y0ATM

SMF Jazz Academy students participated from a wide range of local schools, including Charles Ellis Montessori Academy, School of Humanities at Juliette Gordon Low Elementary, Oglethorpe Charter School, Godley Station School, Marshpoint Elementary School, STEM Academy at Bartlett, Savannah High School and Woodville Tompkins High School.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the SMF Jazz Academy transitioned to online learning for the 2020-2021 school year, added several new staff members and offered students virtual masterclasses and workshops led by SMF Jazz Academy faculty as well as other talented artists from across the United States. The SMF Jazz Academy’s first full year followed a successful Spring 2020 pilot semester at the School of Humanities at Juliette Gordon Low Elementary.

“Despite the challenges the pandemic posed, it has been impressive to watch our students’ resiliency and musical growth over the course of the academic year,” said Jessica Messere, SMF Jazz Academy Manager. “We have one student who was new to the saxophone and the program, and now she’s soloing with her improvisations to songs from jazz musicians like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington.”

An optional Small Combo group enabled students to take jazz to the next level, with morning outdoor practices every Saturday throughout the spring. Small Combo students quickly began playing songs together, complete with solos, improvisations and accompaniments.

“Our program provides an opportunity for students to learn jazz and offers valuable lessons in self-expression, trust and camaraderie,” said Jenny Woodruff, Savannah Music Festival’s Director of Education and Community Engagement. “Each student learns how to create unique solos and to build a strong connection by working together.”

The SMF Jazz Academy program is open to any Savannah-Chatham County Public School student in fifth through twelfth grade who does not have a jazz band offered at his or her school. The program, which does not require previous musical experience, is designed for beginning, intermediate and advanced students. The online SMF Jazz Academy program includes free instrument rental as well as weekly private lessons via video, composition and music technology classes, virtual practice rooms, online master classes with guest artists and more.

The mission of SMF Jazz Academy is to lead positive and progressive change in Savannah by providing equal access to exceptional music education in a safe, accepting learning environment that supports each child’s development.

Thanks to the generosity of founding sponsors Ron and Susan Whitaker, the program is free to all participating students. In addition, the Hodge Foundation, Junior Jazz Foundation and Widespread Panic’s Tunes for Tots provide free instrument rentals to participants.
