The SOE Jazz Ensemble Method is designed for use by middle school, junior high, high school, and community jazz ensembles, and in the private studio. The book is divided into three sections, each representing a different jazz style: rock, swing, and Latin. Each section contains rhythm studies and improvisation studies which may be played with other members of the ensemble or with the accompanying CD (affixed to the back cover). Each section of the book also includes jazz charts (13 total) that apply what is learned in the rhythm and improvisation studies. The flexible scoring allows for a full-sounding ensemble with as few as half the players of the standard jazz band instrumentation, and also includes books for flute, clarinet, horn, and tuba. The director's score include tips on player selection, band setup, audio reinforcement, music selection, rehearsal suggestions etc. The SOE Jazz Ensemble Method will be for both the seasoned jazz band diector and the band director with little or no experience at all. The minimum instrumentation required for method effectiveness is 2 alto saxes, 1 tenor sax, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone, piano, bass, and drums.
