In the 1970s, Clark Terry, along with other musicians, was invited to local schools to teach about jazz. Clark realized that this was a great way to perpetuate jazz and began visiting more and more schools. He even began teaching jazz to kids in clubs and studios. Together with Fred Wayne, he put together a book with fifty tunes in it, which were to be taught to the kids. Clark taught the kids the theory of music, ways of reading music, and all about phrasing. Jazz took up most of his time, and he loved every minute of it as the only thing that had never let him down. Watching the young cats in that Harlem youth band grow in their careers made Clark feel proud. He also wrote books and brochures to put across messages to youngsters wanting to learn jazz.
