"I have used this series a lot in my teaching both for students taking jazz exams AND for those taking classical exams. The books are a good source of repertoire after for the gap between exams, and in my view are a little more stretching than the classical equivalent grade. The grade 1 pieces are especially appealing, most people seem to love slinky thing or jean Pierre, and both lend themselves well to being taught by ear for beginners."
