Practising scales and arpeggios can seem like to be a compulsory exercise, if this is the case, then Groove Connection, is the answer for you. This tried and tested concept features exciting musical workouts for players of all levels. Start your lessons and practice by brushing aside monotony and getting into the Groove! This approach is rooted in the principles of music education. Composer Klaus Dickbauer uses the pleasure of playing the instrument as the basis for learning.
The series introduces elements of music-making such as major scales and arpeggios while putting them in context with performance pieces and improvisations. Technical development becomes a means of personal expression. Students and teachers can use the recordings to practise in pairs, groups, ensembles, individual lessons and, of course, at home, where the play-along CD replaces the other players.

(...) A welcome addition to any beginning or young jazz program, this method would be a helpful supplement for teachers looking to introduce improvisation and jazz articulations to a classroom of like or diverse instruments. For an advanced player looking for a change of pace to his or her mundane ritual of scales and arpeggios or a younger player wanting to learn jazz articulation and beginning improvisation, Klaus Dickbauer's Groove Connection offers an enjoyable and worthwhile approach.
