(Introductory Method for Jazz Ensemble)
Dean Sorenson - Neil A Kjos Music Co

First Place for Jazz is a comprehensive introductory jazz method and can be essential for implementing a jazz ensemble curriculum. The book is divided into three sections by key: Concert Bb, F, and Eb. Within each section the major, Mixolydian, Dorian, and blues scales and correlated chords of that key are introduced through Jazz Starters, Rhythm Section Spotlights, and Rhythm Sectionals. These enrichments prepare students to play each of the twelve grade 1 and 2 Jazz Ensemble Charts and Lead Sheets that are included in the book. Suitable for group or individual instruction, this unique organization, combined with a host of innovative features including an online Interactive Practice Studio and availability in SmartMusic, will provide bands with the tools they need. Additional features include: Aurally Presented Scales (a foundation for more advanced improvisation study); Progressive Pitch Sets (students learn to walk before they run); One at a Time Chord Introduction (allows students to gradually master their harmonic understanding); Rhythm Figures (taken from the included jazz ensemble charts, helping students to develop an understanding of phrasing and articulation); Improvisation Practice (giving students the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the exercises); Let's Check Progress (motivates students by allowing them to chart their growth); Spotlights (develops the individual skills required of rhythm section players); Instrument-specific Recordings (provided online in the First Place for Jazz Interactive Practice Studio for Jazz Starters exercises, charts and Lead Sheets); Rhythm Sectionals (builds the rhythm section groove for the included Jazz Ensemble Charts step-by-step) and much, much more! Essential for implementing a comprehensive jazz curriculum, this method is built from the ground up!
