  • November 28, 2011 Christmas Jazz, Rags & Blues-Book 3

    Bought these for my students to get away from the standard classical style of playing. The 9 songs in this book have different style rhythms from blues,Jazz, and Ragtime written to Christmas music. This book 3 has some very good syncopated rhythms, plus I have the students also add...

    some improv. or change the note durations along with what is written to make the songs sound more lively. Songs in this series are pretty good as written. The Book 3 is easy to read and well organized. Songs are 1 to 3 pages in length. The songs are a series to get into pop/blues/Rag to learn basic syncopated rhythms to known Christmas songs. Book 3 is for the intermediate student throughout the book. All 4 Levels of this series are pretty good learning books. Variety of Blues, Jazz,and Ragtime Christmas songs from easy to the intermediate/advanced playing student. All the songs have very interesting styles to them. hope this helps. pianomanDT

    I have traditional classical piano training and would probably consider myself of advanced intermediate skill. The arrangements in this book are surprisingly nice, yet simple. I use them as a base and modify them according to my own style and preference. In general, these are warm, jazzy pieces that don...

    't sound didactic.
