The Kjos Contemporary Combo Series is a series of four individual beginning instruction books for Keyboard, Guitar, Bass, Guitar, and Drums (drum set). No musical knowledge necessary! The Books have been miraculously devised so students study their own individual instrument until a "Session" sign appears in their book. Then students on all Combo Instruments can play together and "Jam" to their hearts content. What a great opportunity ... perform in a Combo from the very start! What a motivational tool for studio teachers If this is not motivation enough each Kjos Contemporary Combo Series book has a marvelous Accompaniment Cassette which is filled with "Mini Jams." These are professionally recorded accompaniments to many of the exercises in each book. Students can perform these exercises with the Accompaniment Cassette and feel like they are a member of an outstanding Combo Motivation, Motivation, Motivation is the Kjos Contemporary Combo Series "key to success." Also, all "Sessions" are recorded so students can hear how the "Sessions" should sound and/or they can perform with the cassette if they cannot get a Combo together.

    mix. The tunes are short make sense and have a mix of rock styles. When using this book, I emphasize the importance of phrasing, which is so important in developing muscianship. A few of my students "run out of gas" near the end as the book becomes quite challenging.
