Nice way to introduce early jazz style to a young band
I direct and play with a group of seniors who reside in a Retirement Village and all play instruments. Our counting skills are not up to par but we love dixieland style music. This music fits the bill. We are refreshing our music skills of counting, phrasing and still having fun. This music is great because we enjoy dixieland style and learn at the same time. Great music! Great fun!
This was a bit of a stretch for the beginning students, but the students with 2 or more years experience loved it. It was very catchy to them and the parts repeated enough to make it pretty accessible.
