KIRKUS REVIEW

A how-to-do book with descriptions and explanations of what makes music, types of music, composers, instruments, glossary of terms, etc. Pitch, dynamics, rhythm, melody, harmony and counterpoint, form. Voice, pianoforte, symphony, opera, ballet, home music. How to know composers, foreign and American, stories about compositions, radio and victoria. The book is designed for the layman's better understanding of music, in non-technical language, wide in its choice of illustrations, classic and modern, with suggestions of various angles from which music can be enjoyed. Should think this would be helpful for teachers, as well as audience.
