Teaching and Learning Jazz
From tradition to technology: A frank appraisal of jazz education
by Richie Beirach and Michael Lake
Jazz education has undergone a significant transformation over the past 100 years.
From this book, Richie and Mike provide great stories of jazz wisdom, a reflection on university jazz education including how to choose a school, an analysis of the Hollywood view of jazz education, a look at the psychology of education, and many other previously unexplored essential topics for both teachers and students.
'Teaching and Learning Jazz' is the most important book on Jazz Education I have ever read and possibly ever written!
What you will find in this book...
“This ingenious book, by Richie Beirach and Michael Lake, goes beyond what is found typically in most jazz education ‘how to’ books. The authors offer practical and crucial advice for jazz students based on their real-world experience as students of the music, during their performance careers, and as teachers of this art form.”
