  • November 27, 2011 Jazz, Rags & Blues-Book 4

    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. This book 4 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 4 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 4 is for the late 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. pianomanDT

    I enjoyed these pieces. They're easy to learn but complex enough to be interesting. A nice change of pace for a classical pianist!

    My grandaughter was tired of her classical music books and was delighted with this one. Makes her sound good.
