Rockin' Around the Keys. A beginning improvisation book for intermediate students, it is basically rock-oriented style tunes, written in all major keys with an optional improvisation section in the middle of each tune. The pieces are completely diatonic and a fun way to have students playing with various key signatures so it serves as a scale and chord book supplement.
Available at Rice Music House for $20 and on the web http://www.rockinaroundthekeys.com/volume-i/
