These methods provide complete courses for players off all ages, guiding students from their first note to 'classics', together with compositions by contemporary writers. Each book is accompanied by high quality rhythm section tracks recorded on compact disc. Right from the start, students can enjoy authentic jazz sounds, playing in the company of professionals. With step-by-step instruction and a progression of specially written pieces, the fundamental elements of good technique are introduced alongside the rhythmic subtleties of jazz. Improvisation is encouraged from an early stage and is given direction through the systematic study of scales and arpeggios and advice on ear-training and chord patterns. With supplementary suggestions for listening and reading, and an Appendix containing all the chord progressions for 'live' accompaniment of the tunes, The Jazz Methods are ideally suited to both students working alone and those learning with a teacher. John O'Neill has a solid understanding of jazz and how it can be taught. I highly recommend his educational jazz materials. (Jamey Aebersold) ...a rare opportunity for a new player (or a more experienced one) to develop a really musical facility. A rare addition to the jazz improvising library. (Lee Konitz, international jazz saxophone soloist) The Jazz Method for Trumpets will guide beginners of all ages from producing their first note on the instrument to the performance of full-blown pieces, including classics by Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard.
