Christopher Norton's acclaimed Microjazz series has won worldwide popularity with teachers and students alike for its stimulating blend of contemporary genres and classical values. Tow beginner's books and three collections of repertoire pieces form five clearly defined levels of achievement, making Microjazz the ideal basis for progressive learning and teaching.
Microjazz for Absolute Beginners (level 1) is the very first Microjazz book and is suitable for learners of all ages. Using a combination of words, music and illustrations, it takes first-time players steadily through the early stages of both the practical and theoretical aspects of playing.
A booklet of accompaniments, suitable for use by teacher or any intermediate player, is included. The resulting duets can be played on one or two keyboards and turn even the easiest pupil's tunes into unmistakable Microjazz pieces.
For the first time, the book also now includes and audio CD containing both backing and full performance tracks to enthuse and enhance your practice and performance.
