Many piano students, including adults, want to play jazz or rock, but don't know where to begin. The Jazz/Rock Course and the Adult Jazz/Rock Course were developed for students and teachers with limited or no experience in improvising or performing jazz and rock music. Carefully planned improvisation opportunities throughout give teachers and students guidelines on how to approach the concept. Students may hear the pieces performed on the accompanying recordings exactly as they should be played, with or without instrumental accompaniment. The Jazz/Rock Course is perfect for individual or group instruction and is playable on both acoustic and electronic keyboards. It is a supplement to Alfred's Basic Piano Library, Levels 2, 3 and 4. The Adult Jazz/Rock Course is great for teens and adults and correlates with Level 1 of Alfred's Adult Piano Course.
