First published in 1994, The Jazz Method for Flute teaches the fundamentals of good technique, reading skills, music theory and jazz harmony, while at the same time giving the student the opportunity to improvise from an early stage. The book comes with links to mp3 downloads, featuring a superb rhythm section that will give the student the feeling of playing with a band from the very beginning.
‘John O’Neill has produced an excellent book which provides a new and welcome approach to flute playing.’
Aidan Gotzee (Pan, The Journal of the British Flute Society).
‘Very good original jazz tunes that students will use as a stepping-stones to further development. A non-jazz-playing flute teacher would probably find the book a godsend, especially if students are studying for GCSE music.’
Steve Tayton (Jazz Journal International).
