COUNT BASIE and DUKE ELLINGTON!!!!
Take the “A” Train
Depending on the students’ skill level these tunes can be easy to difficult. But the point is: the history, style and language is built into these tunes. If you want to teach them right start here. Lots of teaching opportunities for you and the students are playing the music by Americas greatest composer (Duke) and most swingin’ band leader (Count)!
