Jazzagility! is a brand-new and unique series, designed to develop piano students' technique using fun material. The pieces are in a variety of jazz-based styles, notably Latin, swing and rock, and, in the first two levels, are enhanced by teacher duets.
Book 2 builds upon the foundations formed in the previous levels, and students now move around the keys, encountering octave leaps, arpeggio preparation and crossing hands. In addition, they will acquire other important technical skills such as balancing melody and accompaniment, voicing chords, and legato pedalling.
Jazzagility! is ideally intended to be used as a complete series, but if a student prefers to begin straightaway with volume two, he or she is sure to still derive much benefit and pleasure from doing so.
