The tunes in New Orleans Jazz Styles are written for piano students of intermediate level. The composer-teacher believes that every student's musical education should include experiences in a variety of popular stylings, including jazz, as a recurring phase of his or her studies. Students should also be encouraged to deviate from the written notes with their own improvisations if desired, for spontaneity is an essential ingredient of the jazz idiom

This title has selections that range in difficulty from SMP Level 4-6.

    This is a strong collection of intermediate level music. It is great to play and great to hear. The second book is More New Orleans Jazz Styles, also recommended.

    All three of the New Orleans Jazz Styles by Gillock are outstanding. I highly recommend the 3 book/CD combo Pack as it makes learning quicker and plays a great background to jam with. Every song is worth learning and fun to improvize with. Students of all ages will enjoy...

    the songs. Most of the pieces in the collection of three books are at an intermediate level but there are a couple that even a beginner could learn.
