Over seventy original progressive studies in a variety of jazz styles, by James Rae. A systematic, methodical approach that helps you to play stylish Jazz right from the beginning. The book is divided into three sections; part One introduces the beginner to jazz rhythms, including swing quavers, syncopation and displaced accents. Part Two contains twenty carefully graded melodic jazz studies to assist in the formulation of physical techniques and skills. Part Three Improvisation and Blues encourages the budding Jazz flautist to use these studies as the basis for further creative jazz improvisation.
