After teaching more than 35,00 Students over the past 20 years,
I knew exactly what I needed. I needed jazz studies in a variety of keys and styles, beginning with simple rhythms and phrases that were fun to play and teach. I needed etudes that were challenging
but not to difficult. I needed etudes that would not seem corny to younger students or novel to more mature students.
Complete Jazz styles Vol 1 was conceived for use with students having intermediate playing skills as well as more advanced students or teachers looking to advance their understanding
of reading and playing jazz charts. The book was designed to be used in combination with
the written practice tips CD Demonstrations and accompaning tracks to provide an understanding of how to perform a variety of jazz styles.
The 12 styles covered include Swing, Bossa Nova, Funk,
and Jazz Rock. The concepts stressed include rhythm, articulation and phrasing. The intention was to develop a method that would establish the fundamental building blocks to excel as a developing jazz musician.
