"...this book has proved invaluable in providing suitable material, and developing confidence in this field."
Tune-In, November 1989
"I am delighted to see at last a book which concentrates more upon the practical aspects of music in the classroom than upon theory. ‘Jazz in the Classroom’ will prove to be a valuable foundation course prior to GCSE Music and one that I myself shall definitely use."
