Description

Jazz is an aural tradition - players learn as much from listening to other musicians as they do from reading notation. To emphasise this, ABRSM's new package of jazz piano titles contains a CD for each grade which will be invaluable in learning the pieces, recreating the styles and understanding the materials. CD containing performances of all the pieces for the grade, a sample set of aural tests, with an 'examiner' and 'candidate' showing how these will be administered in the exam, and some additional practice aural tests, and examples of quick studies and scales. You also get the chance to play along with a professional drummer and bass-player in three backing tracks, and each CD starts with three exhilarating trio takes to get you into the groove.show more

Review quote

A musical revolution that should make every jazz lover leap for joy. * The Guardian * The arrival of the Associated Board's jazz syllabus marks a vital step towards recognition that jazz requires study and discipline like any other art form. * Stuart Nicholson, Author 'Jazz Rock: a History' and 'Billie Holiday' * The new Associated Board jazz syllabus is not only timely for young and not so young Australian musicians now clamouring to know more about jazz-it is an attractive, well-thought through compilation of 'real' jazz knowledge that will get authentic results. * Associate Professor Patrick Crichton, Head of Jazz Studies, Western Australian Conservatorium of Mus * Awe-inspiring in its thoroughness...Especially impressive in this series are the specific scales, aural skills and piano pieces-a pedagogical marvel that Americans would do well to emulate. * Piano & Keyboard * A comprehensive, intelligent, beautifully packaged presentation. * Piano *show more
