The School of Music
Publisher: Wide Eyed Books
Welcome to the School of Music. In charge is Maestro Sergio Trunk. Over three terms, you'll discover the wide, wonderful world of music, whether you're listening, reading, writing or playing.
There's a tour of musical genres and eras, from classical to jazz, medieval to modern, as well as introductions to the various instrument families - those played with a bow and those with keys. Once you've covered reading and writing music, and getting the timing right, you reach the best bit: having fun making a wonderful sound!
Accompanying a chatty text, clean, sharp ice-cream coloured graphics make complex concepts incredibly clear, with musical samples to download and activities to stimulate responses and deepen understanding. Wise, inspiring and innovative, this introduction is underpinned by great depth and breadth of expertise.
