Let’s Play Jazz & More by Jay Latulippe and Sonny Doss is quickly gaining ground on all the generic methods in the market. Many piano teachers settle into one particular series because they have become familiar with it over time and truly because there is very little difference between them. Let’s Play Jazz & More is set apart from the rest. This is not your typical classic approach to beginning piano, this series is actually fun. Students will be improvising, composing, arranging and reading in no time. Teachers with any musical background can easily implement the techniques in this best-selling Santorella Publication. The companion CD has a full-band with jazz, rock, blues and even reggae arrangements which makes the lesson materials exciting and easy to grasp. By using familiar music and soundtracks, the student will look forward to practicing and be anxious to learn each style that follows. The concepts introduced in Let’s Play Jazz & More Primer are continued, developed and supplemented in Books 1, 2 & 3. You’ll see your student’s eyes light up as they gain a deeper understanding of blues progressions while developing reading, improvisation & rhythm skills. Also ideal for private study or group format.
