Trumpet student as a kid. It is inspiring and opens young musicians eyes, ears and minds to all kinds of music, every kind of music has roots well demonstrated in the "Marsalis On Music" series.
This is a four part DVD: Part 1 titled "RHYTHM. Part 2 titled "FORM". Part 3 titled "From Sousa To Satchmo". Part 4 tiled " Tackling The Monster - Practice".
You will see and hear young musicians playing like professionals that is inspiring to music students whether their instrument is Brass, Guitar, Drums, Voice and all others. You will also
be given insights from Wynton Marsalis' jazz orchestra and some fine music from New Orleans.
This four DVD set is an excellent gift. You will hear new things every time you watch it.
Wynton Marsalis is one of the greatest musicians in the world and he shares his talent, experience, and knowledge like I have never seen or heard before on DVD.
Marsalis and his cast do a fantastic job going through MANY styles of music and helping explain how it works, how they are put together (especially the 12 bar blues), and how to listen to and appreciate it.
I saw this when it aired on PBS, and had to track it down and own it for watching over, and showing to my children as they learn about music - to broaden their horizons and appreciation of other music forms.
It's the best primer I know of to introduce a love of music, as well as a good understanding of the forms music takes to any interested viewer/listener.
This will be understood by ages 6-96.
This DVD set is worth every penny I paid for it and should be considered a "Must Watch" for all school children, all people wanting to learn about music and for all musicians.
Well done Wynton Marsalis. You have taken your place amongst all of the greatest Music Educators of all time.
I still learn something new each time I show/watch them!
These are a great supplement to any teacher's curriculum.
They are also enjoyable, for those who want to learn more about music or just listen to good music.
I use these in classrooms from grades 4 through college.
