Description
The Oxford First Companion to Music is the first comprehensive music book for children under thirteen. Some of its special features are: * Content arranged by topic so that is can be read for interest as well as used for reference * "More about" boxes, referring to pages on related topics, to help with looking up facts * Numerous photographs and line drawings in full color, especially chosen to be informative rather than merely decorative * Over 50 short music examples, many easy enough to be picked out on a recorder or piano * Covers all kinds of music including music of the Far East and Africa as well as pop and jazz * Suggestions for music to listen to, a reminder that music is not just facts but an aural experience This is a book for all children who want to find out more about the music they enjoy through records, radio, television, or playing instruments.
