Adventures In Jazz

Books and CDs | Piano

Author: Willie Myette
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor

This book was inspired by the need for catchy jazz repertoire suited for small hands while remaining fun and challenging for students of all ages. The pieces in this book provide students with fragmented ideas for use in later improvisational studies.

The simple harmonic progressions of these pieces also lend themselves easily to transposition, an idea that most students are not exposed to in beginning studies. The accompanying CD demonstrates each piece.

The pieces can be used with any methodology as a springboard for students' improvisation and composition, or as part of the larger JazzKids curriculum (, which offers opportunities for musical excitement and expression by augmenting traditional reading skills with original jazz repertoire, improvisation, performance and parental involvement.

    A really good, simple introduction to jazz. The pieces are made up of patterns that can gradually built up into improvisations and the learner quickly develops confidence.
