The Pentatonics are a jazz band dedicated to bringing all kinds of jazz to all kinds of people of all ages. We are both dedicated jazz artists and dedicated music teachers trained in the Orff approach to joyful music education for children. Daily working with kids, we begin in the child’s world of play and chant and movement to bring them into swingin’ jazz arrangements at their level of skill and understanding. We have given concerts and workshops to great acclaim at the SF Jazz Center, Stanford Jazz Festival and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.

 

Doug Goodkin is an internationally acclaimed music educator. In his 41st year teaching music at The San Francisco School, Doug has written eight books, including the groundbreaking Now’s the Time: Teaching Jazz to All Ages.
