Musician visits Pinehurst Elementary By KELSEY SAINTZ Staff writer PINEHURST — Two elementary schools worth of children saw what could be described as a rare sight in the Silver Valley Wednesday — Jon Pugh, a trumpet/cornet soloist, played a concert and provided a mini jazz lesson. Pinehurst Elementary School and Canyon Elementary Science Magnet School were his audience. “Jazz is really America’s music,” he said. “It was born here.” He’s currently visiting Moscow as a clinician for the University of Idaho’s Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival. Part of the festival is the Jazz in Schools program, in which famous musicians perform at rural schools in the Inland Northwest.

“Exposure to jazz music needs every opportunity it can get,” Pugh said. “When invited (to perform), it’s a huge honor.” The Wenatchee, Wash., native currently lives in the Seattle area and has been a recording artist and clinician since 1982. Pugh was accompanied by a small jazz ensemble consisting of a drummer, guitarist and electric bass player. Together, the group gave students a short jazz lesson — using a rubber chicken, a mini football and a stuffed Curious George doll. The 12-bar blues is
made up of three chords, Pugh said. Each item signified a different chord; loosely, a chord is any harmonic set or two, three or more notes that are played at the same time. Using a plastic fork as a pointer, Pugh would motion to the rubber chicken to have the ensemble play that chord, or the mini football, which caused them to play a slightly different chord. Then, the group played a song aptly named, “George’s Football Chicken Blues,” using the chords they had just become familiar with. By the end of the concert, the musicians had the students snapping along with the beat and wiggling on their seats.
