This book does what it says on the cover, and does it with clarity, style and immense skill. There is a logical progression of 15 sessions that explain the fundamental elements of jazz, covering: understanding syncopated rhythms, how to swing, playing from memory, understanding basic chords and chord symbols, playing in different popular styles, scales and modes used in jazz, the beginnings of improvisation, and suggested listening to provide inspiration. There are also online resources available via a QR code or directly from the Faber website. I tried out some of the sessions with one of my pupils who loves jazzy pieces, but the thought of playing jazz with its different chords, blank bars and modes filled her with horror. We found that this book led us through all these potential pitfalls comfortably and most enjoyably. She got carried away and went leaping ahead - we then practised what we had learned about syncopation and swing on her Burgmuller piece! I can see this book becoming a classic 'how to' book, being tremendously helpful for GCSE music, teachers who want to teach ABRSM jazz exams, and for all pianists. I am delighted to say that Pam Wedgwood has done it again. Fiona Lau, Music Teacher Magazine, November 2018
