Each chapter includes an introduction of the style, a "clinics room" that includes performance tips of the genre and a play-along piece at the end that coincides with the CD and optional DVD. Included in this series are: Seven different jazz grooves including swing, bossa nova, rock, shuffle, samba, funk, and ballad; Clarity and deference through adjusting your volume or knowing when not to play; How to keep time as a rhythm section; How to comp effectively; Reproducible pages in the student book. The Supplemental Melody Book is for use with additional instruments in the ensemble.
