“This publication began as a presentation for a national music education conference after which, I had numerous requests from classically-trained piano teachers for more help on teaching this topic. To meet the request quickly, I tidied up the presentation slides and converted them to a PDF intending to expand it further down the road. Well, here it is at last, a practical guide garnered from my first-hand experiences as both a student and jazz professional.” — Bradley Sowash
“I wanted you to know how much I love your Book “Preparing Students for Jazz Bands”! I have muddled through for years trying to create my own way with my kids going into jazz bands and I was grateful I played on worship teams for years with Lead sheets. ...Your book simplified and really spelled out what I end up working with my kids on here but with even more detail and and ways to practice what they are learning.” — Sue Piatt, Side By Side Studios
