    Excellent job this year!!
    You all should consider purchasing this book – http://www.shermusic.com/new/1883217156.shtml

    I’ve used this book for many years and it helps students sound great fast!!

    *Get yourself sounding good right away with the first fake book ever designed for the beginning improviser:
    *Easy, but classic jazz tunes give the student a good start in learning the jazz repertoire. See the complete tune list below.
    *Sample piano voicings, guitar chord diagrams, sample bass lines and useful scales for improvisation are included with each tune, for easy reference. (See sample tune)
    *Developed and road-tested for years at the Stanford Jazz Workshop’s summer jazz camps. It works!
    *Each song will sound good played in rock, funk or Latin styles, as well as swing.
    *Perfect for individual students of all ages, as well as jazz combos.
    *94 pages!
    *Satisfaction guaranteed or your money refunded!
