    Love the rhythms in these pieces. Some can be challenging to get right. Good lessons in holding a beat while undergoing large rhythmic changes. Very enjoyable to play.

    I am pleased with this series. My students like to play the musice, so they will practice. The selections offer good lessons in style. I find it especially useful for those students who have a "wooden style" of playing. It seems to free up their inhibitions.

    Bought these for my students to get away from the standard classical style of playing. The 10 songs in this book have different style rhythms from blues,Jazz, and Ragtime. This book 1 has some very good 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 1 is easy to read and well organized. Songs are 1 or 2 pages in length. The songs are a series to get into pop/blues/Rag to learn basic syncopated rhythms. Book 1 is for the early intermediate student throughout the book. All 5 Levels of this series are pretty good learning books. Variety of Blues, Jazz,and Ragtime songs from easy to the intermediate/advanced playing student. All the songs have very interesting styles to them. hope this helps.
