USA Today said of the series -Marsalis On Music is a thrilling, four-part seminar of music appreciation... Comparisons to Leonard Bernstein's famed Young People's Concerts are appropriate. --USA Today

Our VHS set is in tatters, so I'm glad to see that it is finally available on DVD!

Wynton has a knack of speaking plainly, yet he presents the material with integrity and with innovative creativity.

They are also enjoyable, for those who want to learn more about music or just listen to good music.

I can't recommend these DVDs enough. Wynton Marsalis communicates the fundamentals of jazz using illustrations from everyday life (playing basketball, etc.) in a compelling, visually interesting way. His use of famous contemporary musicians (including gifted children) makes the lessons more inspiring, as do the artistic backdrops and illustrations. Simple enough for beginners, but complex enough to keep intermediate students interested, these lessons appeal to both children and adults. Each of the four DVD's ("Why Toes Tap" [rhythm], "Listening for Clues" [form], "Sousa to Satchmo" [the jazz band], and "Tackling the Monster" [on practice]) may be purchased separately, though, so consider that when purchasing. The price is high for the set, which is why I rated this with 4 stars, but I know of nothing else that communicates these ideas as concisely and as down-to-earth in such a fun way. This would be a good addition to a school media library, or a homeschool co-op.

I really like this series. It is great for use in the music classroom as a launching point for discussion into a wide variety of topics. It is well designed for use in the middle school. I think most would try to use it as material for a day when they were going to be absent, but it easy to create worksheets or discussion questions with the videos with a pre-viewing of the videos.

As a freshman in college, I remember setting my alarm for Saturday mornings so I could be sure to watch this as it was airing on PBS! I'm not a musician, but I loved the intelligent and intelligible way that he taught the basics of music. Our VHS set is in tatters, so I'm glad to see that it is finally available on DVD!
