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.

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 * A comprehensive, intelligent, beautifully packaged presentation. * Piano * 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 *
