As a player, Chris Gumbley has toured with the Temptations, the Four Tops, the English Chamber Orchestra and the BBC Big Band and it was his membership of the Birmingham-based saxophone quintet 'Saxtet' which led to his taking up a teaching post at Birmingham Conservatoire which he held for 14 years. His career in music education includes travelling the world as an ABRSM examiner and much of the music he has written is listed in exam syllabi.

"Cool School" is one of his most successful publications to date and is typical of his composing style which is rooted in a jazz idiom, with a strong melodic line, harmonic twists and quirky rhythms - a style which is intended to appeal as much to teachers as their students. Each of the sixteen studies is headed with a short note on technique and they can stand alone as complete works in themselves, but the CD provided offers backing tracks if required.
