The Standard of Excellence Jazz Ensemble Method is designed for use by middle school, junior high, high school, community jazz ensembles, and in the private studio.

The book is divided into three sections, each representing a different jazz style: rock, swing, and Latin. Each section contains rhythm studies and improvisation studies which may be played with other members of the ensemble or with accompanying CD (affixed to the back cover). Each section of the book also includes a jazz chart (13 total) that applies what is learned in the rhythm and improvisation studies. The flexible scoring allows for a full-sounding ensemble with as few as half the standard instrumentation.

Minimum instrumentation for method effectiveness: 2 alto saxophones, 1 tenor saxophone, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone, 1 piano, 1 bass, 1 drum.
