What do our customers say about our 'jazz etudes'?

'Jazz etudes have such excellent content, If you’re looking at improving your jazz playing, jazz vocabulary and improvisation skills, then look no further. These are challenging without being too difficult like many transcription books, they allow you to understand and build a knowledge of jazz phrases and language. Throughly enjoyable for woodwind instruments also'

 Joann Kerrigan - Saxophone player & teacher

'Your etudes are great, my students love them!'

Jarritt A Sheel - Assistant Professor, Music Education - Berklee College of Music 

'As a bass player I have found the Jazz Etudes to be very helpful for my playing on a number of levels. Firstly, just playing each etude helps develop my ear as I hear alternative melodies to the song which helps me to think about the structure in a deeper level. Secondly, by going through each etude and mapping out what the notes are in relation to the chord I gain a better understanding of how to build a solo using chord tones, extensions, chromaticism etc. Finally, by playing the etude slowly at first I strengthen my sight reading abilities and my knowledge of the fretboard. Overall, I have found these Etudes to be a very worthwhile investment'

David Cobb - Bass player

'Hi Darren - I want to send you a note about my delight with your etude book. As a comeback trumpet player, these are perfect! I love having something to practice other than scales that are melodic and chord-tone based. I would think that any intermediate player would enjoy these as I do! 

Keep up the great work - please!'

Russell Anderson - Trumpet player
