Hello,
I'm not a musician but this is my opinion about the differences between rock and jazz.
Jazz: is complex and there are a lot of instrumental parts to a jazz song. Instruments such as saxophones are used and the whole genre is quite free in form. Harry Connick Jr. is a well-known jazz musician.
Rock: encompasses a lot of different rock varieties such as soft rock, hard rock, heavy metal, goth music and classic rock. This genre uses instruments like electric guitars. For example, Nirvana was a rock band.
Do any of the other teachers have anything they would like to add to these brief descriptions?

The point here that we just can't say "hard jazz", though. Sounds weird.
