The recent study was conducted to improve the competence of the students grade
five of SD Negeri 2 Banjar Tegal Singaraja in speaking capability by applying Jazz Chant
Technique. The subjects of the study were the second-year students of SD Negeri 2 Banjar
Tegal Singaraja, especially those who belong to class V. The total number of the subjects was
17 students, 10 males, and 7 females. This study was conducted in two cycles. Each cycle
consisted of two sessions. The first sessions were done for the treatment and the last session
was for posttest. This study was an action-based classroom research that was conducted in
two cycles in which four steps were involved in each cycle, namely; planning, action,
observation, and reflection. Besides, the data were obtained through three kinds of an
instrument; questionnaire, test, and researcher’s diary. A pre-test was given to the students
before conducting the action to obtain the preliminary data of the students’ achievement in
speaking capability. Then, the data obtained were descriptively analyzed. The study
showed that the students’ competence in speaking capability improved. The continual
improvement took place in the students’ achievement. It was shown by the students’ mean
score, which increased from cycle to cycle. Students’ mean score was 54 in the pre-test, which
was categorized as poor. After the treatment was conducted, it increased to a sufficient level
of mastery 65 in post-test I. The second treatment was then conducted to get a satisfactory
result since the results of students’ score were not satisfying yet. Finally, the students’ mean
score could reach a good criterion, which was 80 in the post-test II. From the observation, it
was found that Jazz Chant Technique allowed the students to collect their ideas, practice
their pronunciation, intonation and organized their speaking capability through the song of
Jazz Chant Technique that guided the students systematically in speaking capability so that
they could produce good pronunciation in speaking. In addition, the technique also brought
about a positive effect in fostering students’ motivation and interest in learning English.
