Two tutor books take first time players steadily through basic keyboard technique and theory using simple pieces in popular styles such as jazz, blues, rock 'n' roll and reggae. Each book features simple pieces with distinctive Microjazz style accompaniments for use by a teacher or any intermediate player. The resulting duets transform even the easiest tunes into unmistakable Microjazz pieces. Hear the unique sound world of Microjazz come alive right from the very first lesson.

Press Reviews

Christopher Norton's Microjazz. Pieces lend themselves extremely well to the classroom scenario; their use of popular styles that are attractive to the ear has great educational value, especially in terms of teaching rhythm and syncopation."
(Online Journal, July 2000) "...other books in the Microjazz series...have been praised by many people on many levels and offer a wide range of original rhythmically-based pieces in a wide variety of styles. The really nice thing about the books is the pieces themselves. They are not only exercises but also good music in their own right...The collection is very highly recommended."
Keyboard Player, February 1998

Customer Reviews
