It's important for kids to know that rockstars come in many shapes and forms. The only things that binds them together are music and a great attitude. Enter Miles Davis: armed with just a trumpet, Miles made music history by showing everyone what jazz could sound like with electric instruments!
Back then, people could've never imagined that jazz could be combined with other music genres such as rock, soul and funk. Miles Davis managed to change everyone's perspective with his trumpet, his band and his amazing vision.
Miles is also the perfect artist to explore the emotions that music makes us feel. Sure, the science behind making sounds and combining them into music is fascinating to any kid. But listening close enough to find out how a certain piece makes us feel? That's where the true magic lies.
