Area of Study D: Jazz

This pack covers the diverse and historically significant area of jazz, seen by many as America’s ‘classical music’.

Students can gain vital practice in a variety of prominent genres throughout its rich history including the swing big bands of the 1930s, the 1940s bebop style, and cool jazz towards the end of the 1950s. Artists such as Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington and Dizzy Gillespie provide a wealth of exam prep!

The questions are very well constructed. There is a nice variety of question type clearly mirroring Eduqas exam methodology… The author demonstrates excellent musical jazz knowledge and the level of questioning at A Level standard particularly impresses me – just the right level of difficulty. – R Brown, Teacher & Expert Reviewer
