What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5512)
"It is refreshing to see a resource that investigates jazz with the same level of insight and skill one normally associates with classical music... This is a comprehensive teaching resource with a clear logical structure... Includes a number of novel features which encourage the appropriate attainment of knowledge and skills... The mock exam questions and answer sheets included at the back of the resource are invaluable. The questions are always relevant and perfectly pitched at the appropriate level... The OCR course aims for section B and C are comprehensively addressed. Would I purchase this resource? Yes!" - M Bills, Music Lecturer and Independent Reviewer
"This is a very comprehensive guide to the content necessary to approach the teaching of the OCR AS Jazz set works for 2015-16. The author has put in considerable detail to the social and musical contexts for each work as well as a full analysis. This would help any teacher gets to grips with three new works for which there is currently no specific resource." - D Madden, Music Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"This resource is of an excellent standard... It would be most helpful, especially to teachers with a classical training and less experience of the jazz idioms... The author has notated excerpts from the repertoire and this is a significantly helpful addition... The final section where all the materials are related to exemplar examination questions for sections B and C of the specification is very valuable." - S Lloyd-Jones, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
