Learn fun jazz solos to supplement your piano lessons! Jazz Masters for Piano is a wonderful supplement to the student-level piano repertoire. It introduces you to colorful, fun-to-play pieces in a variety of jazz styles. Take a guided tour through the important styles of the jazz masters. You'll learn how they get their unique sound---while progressively arranged, original compositions give you a chance to try out these styles on your own. Accompanying every piece are listening suggestions, a biography of the artist who inspired it, and specially tailored preparatory exercises.
Jazz Masters for Piano is recommended for students age 12 and older, but younger musicians can enjoy playing the pieces under the guidance of a teacher. The included CD demonstrates all the examples and allows you to play along (with solo keyboard or full band).
* Perfect for curious piano students and self-learners

Each solo piano piece in the Masters for Piano series correlates to pages in Alfred's Complete Methods---such as Beginning, Intermediate, and Mastering Jazz Keyboard---as well as Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course and Alfred's Basic Adult Piano All-in-One Course.
