This book of newly composed jazz tunes for all young pianists lets you rattle out a rag, relax with a sunny calypso, get moody with the blues; in short, get ready to rock, tango, and boogie your way through a wealth of toe-tapping tunes. Wittily illustrated and suited to those around the level of Piano Time 2, the book provides fresh and original repertoire in a range of jazz and light-hearted styles.

I play classical piano and bought this for my grandson who is just beginning to learn. I love it and will buy one for myself. I am particularly impressed by the subtle opportunities to learn timing. Invaluable lessons learnt and the easy and very pleasant right hand harmonies are fun and entertaining.
Books of classical music often have a paragraph of advice on each piece. I would also like to have seen a couple of lines on basic rhythm, just 1 + 2 + etc, tap out the rhythm and get your "ear" in. Maybe more words where appropriate so the family can sing along.

Great songs. I use this after grade one to fire children's imaginations and to show them they can play 'jazz'.

They really increase my pupils' interests in piano, and the songs are written in a simply style, even my youngest pupil (about Grade 1 level) can learn them fairly quickly. Highly recommended.

Customer Rating This book excellent. Kids like it because it is a change from classical playing.

Customer Rating Excellent book - 29 pieces, all with catchy names: 'Tick tock boogie', Saturday stroll, temper tantrum tango, homework blues ... and helps with developing rhymthmic work.

Customer Rating Another brilliant book by Pauline Hall. Great fun tunes in a variety of styles, from rag to calypso and smooth jazz. The tunes, very easy at the beginning, become progressively harder as the book progresses, but none more difficult than about grade 2.

Customer Rating A very good book for introducing different styles of music to beginers. Not just jazz but blues, latin and ragtime styles included.

Customer Rating Many pupils are thrilled by this book - the kind who enjoy all the Piano Time series, generally bright pupils. Some, though, may be deterred if started on it too soon, or if not aware of the bright, humorous tone needed for jazzy stuff, or if could be deterred by it not being strictly in order of difficulty. Teacher input needed.

Customer Rating This is a great book to start teaching syncopated rhythms. I tend to teach the pieces out of order selecting the more "straightforward" pieces first.

Children love the idea they are playing jazz and it makes a good change from the tutor books
