About That's Jazz

That's Jazz is the perfect avenue for motivating elementary & intermediate level students, while opening them up to the vital musical tradition and artistic expression of jazz. Whether teachers have limited jazz training or none at all, they can still feel confident leading students through their first experiences with jazz!

Each book is organized in a clear and consistent format including several unique components:
Warm Up pages focus on key concepts and technical aspects of each tune. Going Further pages build improvisation skills and encourage creative exploration. Optional duet parts enhance practice and performance. Included CD features performances of all tunes, demonstrating their stylistic nuances.

Until now, jazz literature has primarily been accessible only to advanced players, leaving emerging pianists with a gap in their education. That's Jazz fills this gap with a collection of compelling and accessible tunes, covering the main jazz styles of swing, Latin, and rock.
