description
Since it was first published in 1992, The Jazz Method for Saxophone has guided thousands of beginners of all ages from producing their first note on the saxophone to the performance of full-blown jazz pieces, including pieces by contemporary composers.
Based on the tried and tested format of the original method (with step-by-step guidance and a number of pieces specially written for this series), the revised edition is packed with updated content. It also comes complete with exciting new tunes, a re-recorded audio CD and over 2 hours of demo tracks available as free MP3 downloads. Now there is also a greater emphasis on the development of improvisational and listening skills. Thanks to additional suggestions for listening and reading as well as an appendix with all chord sequences for the 'live' accompaniment of the melodies, the 'Jazz Methods' are ideal for both pupils studying by themselves and for pupils learning with a teacher.

"...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)
