Guitar for kids: Learn easy guitar tab - My first songs (Kids learn to play guitar Book 1)

This book of songs has been compiled for children who are studying guitar with The

Guitar Teacher, Mr.Dang Thai Nguyen

The songs in this book are formatted for children between 7 and 12 years.

The main purpose of this book is to strengthen children's command of melody.

It is quite common for people to be introduced to guitar as a chordal instrument.

In this approach people are taught chords first with the idea that the student can sing

along as they play.

The Guitar Teacher prefers to introduce children to guitar firstly as a melody

instrument.

Rather than play chords to start with, children learn melody first.

This has many benefits.

Playing one note at a time is easier for new and young fingers is easier than playing

chords with many fingers. This means they can play recognizable songs quicker.

Which gives them an experience of success. And momentum.

Why melody is easier than chords to play is that you only need one fingertip to play

melody.

But the musical reason for learning melody is even stronger.

Melody teaches the young ear to hear music. To hear melody lines. To feel phrases.

To feel time. To feel rhythm. To feel interval. To feel contour. To feel shape.

Melody is also the skeleton that chords are built on. Knowing the melody of a tune

makes chordal playing more informed--rather than hit and miss--for your child.

Too much chord playing trains your child's hand, to be like a concrete block that gets

lugged from one chord to another. A chord is also several simultaneous melodies.

And your child's melodically trained fingers play that kind of chord beautifully.

Melody provides your child with a powerful foundation that lasts your child's

lifetime--whether they take the instrument seriously or casually in later life.

Any successful musician will tell you the importance of simple melody.

Magnets and miracles. Loneliness and nostalgia in Pink Floyd's lyrics

Following "Dieci brani da ascoltare almeno una volta nella vita" ("10 songs you should listen to before you die") and the books on Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki, Jacopo Caneva's latest work carries out a short, but in-depth study on the concepts of loneliness and nostalgia in Pink Floyd's lyrics, from "The Dark Side of the Moon" to "The Wall". The young writer unveils the common ground of apparently different lyrics: the memory of Syd Barrett, the genius and first leader of the group, the "crazy diamond" who gave the band the name of Pink Floyd, delivering it to myth, disappearing in anonymity after troublesome years. The book is a tribute to the legendary English rock-band and a celebration of the recently released "The Endless River", a new album of previously unreleased songs.

Music that You Need to Know Before You Die: 1960s

This Book is a list of artists and songs that you just have to hear before you die. In the age of crappy pop nonsense, This is a list of the true greats that everyone should know and their names should appear on everyone's playlists and their songs should be listened too all of the time. The book also has some summaries about the artist's and my personal pick of what is their best song. I'm a firm believer that I'm not the only one that feels that there is a lot of Music Now but very little good Music and I just wanted to educate a little and show that there is still good music out there, you just have to go look for it. This Book was my way of giving you a helping hand so I decided to do a series of books that go through the decades starting in the 1960's and going all the way through to the present day. In my humble opinion I've put down quite a list, a list you won't be disappointed with. And a list of artists I'm sure not all of you have heard of them and that's the point of this book to educate and help people find some great music and a little musical knowledge too thrown in for good measure. Well I hope you like my Book and the Books in the rest of the series. If you could please write a review, to give me critiques on what I can improve or anything else it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Klaviersonate in C-Dur, Opus 33 No. 1 / Piano Sonata in C-Major: Piano Score (Bisel Classics Book 285)

In his series of three sonatas Op. 33 Wolfl explored the extended

range of the newly developed piano by the manufacturer

Broadwood. The charming sonatas originated during his most

successful period, the London years. A contemporary lexicon

mentions 1807 as the year of their genesis. With their delicate

structure and overall transparency the sonatas still do not fail to

display moments of virtuosity. The fact that Wolfl in his time was

considered the best piano teacher in London, does not limit the

use of the sonatas to the study room. Their extraordinary beauty

makes them just as precious as concert pieces.

In seiner Sonatenreihe Op. 33 experimentierte Wolfl mit dem

erweiterten Umfang des neu entwickelten Klaviers der Firma

Broadwood. Die charmanten Sonaten stammen aus seiner

erfolgreichsten Zeit, den Londoner Jahren. Ein zeitgenossisches

Lexikon erwahnt das Jahr 1807 als das Entstehungsjahr. Mit ihrer

delikaten Struktur und der transparenten Phrasengestaltung

entbehren die Sonaten dennoch nicht der Virtuositat. Die

Tatsache, dass Wolfl zu jener Zeit als der beste Klavierlehrer in

London bekannt war, beschrankt ihre Nutzung nicht auf das

Studierzimmer. Durch ihre reizvolle Gestaltung sind sie auch als

Konzertliteratur bestens einsetzbar.

Content: Piano Sonata in C Major Op. 33 No. 1
