Are you in a festive mood yet? Or is it a little early!? We all know our students love to play Christmas carols, particularly different arrangements of favourite tunes, and therefore plenty of preparation or practice time is necessary. So, for today’s competition, I have two copies of Jazzin’ At Christmas! to give away to two lucky winners.
Jazzin’ At Christmas! is a collection of ten ‘jazzed up’ Christmas songs arranged by British composer and teacher Rachael Forsyth, and published by Roo Records. I enjoyed playing these through and think students will find them fun; Rachael has included everything from swing and blues through to reggae and calypso styles. Good King Reggae, Manger Calypso, Not so Silent Night and Resting Jazzymen, are amongst the titles! Great for those of around Grades 1 – 3 level (or sight-reading for more advanced players).
Leave your comment in the comment box at the end of this post for a chance to win your copy. I will announce the winners on Sunday night (British time). Good luck!
