The month of June has been considered as the African-American Music Appreciation Month, as declared by United States President Jimmy Carter in 1979. Formerly called the Month of Black Music, it was later changed to the name it is now known last 2009 by US President Barack Obama who considers their music and musicians to have helped the country express their faith through song.

While there are other styles of African-American music in existence—rhythm and blues, hip hop, and funk music—one of the most common and widely recognized style is jazz. What better way to celebrate this event than to listen to jazz music or attend jazz concerts and festivals? You can find various poster designs that you can use to promote jazz-related events in celebration of the African-American Music Appreciation Month.

What is Jazz Music?

Jazz is a genre of music that has originated in New Orleans during the early 1900’s. Jazz music was developed by the African-American population and inspired by both the blues and ragtime genre. Notable characteristics of jazz music include the presence of different instruments playing all at the same time, each with its own improvisation.

Jazz music tends to change its beat or tempo along the way. This means that slow music gradually or suddenly becomes upbeat, and vice versa. Since jazz music is mostly fast in tempo, it is an ideal choice for a style of dance with the same name.

Helpful Tips when using Posters

  • Place it in the right location. Just because you made a poster, it still doesn’t assure you of gaining an audience if you don’t know where to place it. Survey around locations and look for the ones that have a large crowd, such as shopping malls, train stations, or parks. Find the perfect location so your poster becomes very visible to the public.
  • Make the text legible. It is best to make the typography large enough so that it can be seen by people from a distance. This way, they will still get an idea on what the poster is trying to say.
  • Avoid overly cluttered designs. Too much of anything is never good. The same goes with designs. Avoid putting too many elements, only include those that are relevant and can also add to your poster design’s level of appeal. A design that is overly cluttered can make the poster appear unprofessional.
