  • May 28, 2015 Great simple tunes, musically effective

    I love Martha Mier's jazz series. She really has a talent of coming up with simple tunes that are true to the style and sounds good. She throws in enough funky harmonies that keeps it interesting but keeps the technique simple enough that the kids will stick to it...

    and not be discouraged. With that been said, these series are not meant for beginners. They do have some tricky rhythms, and the note reading can be a little advanced due to jazzy accidentals. Great teaching tool to introduce jazz/blues style to students.
