These simple, concise, and straight-forward studies not only help students with the conceptual and stylistic difficulties in the jazz style, but will also help both jazz savvy and novice jazz educators convey these concepts to their students.

Those teachers who have been active in the jazz idiom will relish the fact that they have a complete curriculum of material to work with covering the six aspects of the language of jazz: Rhythm, Articulation, Dynamics, Balance, Phrasing and Beginning Improvisation.
