Please note that due restrictions of copyright we are only able to supply cassettes of recorded examples with this kit.
Consists of four cassette tapes and an instructional book, divided into three sections. The first of these provides a history of jazz in Australia. The second explains and demonstrates the basic musical characteristics of jazz performance and composition. The third exemplifies a number of jazz styles through analyses and teaching activities associated with a selection of pieces by Australian jazz musicians.
Tape one provides historical examples (from World War I to the Great Depression; from Swing to the end of World War II; postwar to the Beatles; from 1964 to the present). Tape two provides examples of theoretical points (swing feel; chord symbols; voicing; bass lines; comping; blues harmonic progressions; improvisation) and gives opportunities for students to improvise as they study each aspect of jazz. Tape three contains the recordings that are discussed in the notes, providing examples of different jazz styles.
After the analysis of each piece there are activities in aural analysis, performance and composition.
