These methods provide complete courses for players of all ages, guiding students from their first note to classics, together with compositions by contemporary writers. Each book is accompanied by high quality rhythm section tracks recorded on compact disc. Right from the start, students can enjoy authentic jazz sounds, playing in the company of professionals. With step-by-step instruction and a progression of specially written pieces, the fundamental elements of good technique are introduced alongside the rhythmic subtleties of jazz. Improvisation is encouraged from an early stage and is given direction through the systematic study of scales and arpeggios and advice on ear-training and chord patterns. With supplementary suggestions for listening and reading, and an Appendix containing all the chord progressions for "live" accompaniment of the tunes, The Jazz Methods are ideally suited to both students working alone and those learning with a teacher. "John O'Neill has a solid understanding of jazz and how it can be taught. I highly recommend his educational jazz materials." (Jamey Aebersold) "...a rare opportunity for a new player (or a more experienced one) to develop a really musical facility. A rare addition to the jazz improvising library." (Lee Konitz, international jazz saxophone soloist) - includes 'classics' by Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins and Horace Silver - "...very good original jazz tunes that students will use as stepping stones for further development... a non-jazz-playing flute teacher would probably find the book a godsend especially if students are studying GCSE music." (Steve Tayton, Jazz Journal International) Part one: The foundation Techniques * Part two: Playing the Music * Part three: Appendices

The book covers the complete emotional spectrum of the Klezmer style, and it will be a pleasure for all clarinetists to get more familiar with the nuances of this unique musical language. Where some passages appear technically challenging due to the high octave range, the composer recommends that performers feel free to transpose and play those passages one octave lower precisely as an "authentic" player might. The chord changes shown above the engraving can be played as an accompaniment by pianists, keyboardists, accordionists, or guitarists, and the included play-along CD gives you ready access to your own Klezmer band. Also available for violin (00-20138US)!
