DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"Contemporary Class Piano, ninth edition, enables class piano students to master the full range of skills needed to succeed in the two-semester class piano course. It provides all the tools needed for mastery, including a wide repertory of practice exercises and pieces, duets for students to performance together, performance tips, and creative exercises. Unlike other class piano texts, Contemporary Class Piano emphasizes creativity over rote learning and covers the full range of basic to advanced skills, eliminating the need to buy additional texts. Acclaimed for its creative approach and diverse repertoire, Contemporary Class Piano provides a student-friendly introduction to basic piano skills. In short, progressive chapters that mirror the standard two-semester curriculum, it explains the essential elements of piano playing, incorporating diagrams, practice exercises, and musical examples that help students build proficiency and confidence with a variety of chord patterns, major and minor scales, and accompaniments. Because most class piano students aspire to be music teachers, the emphasis is on developing functional skills that they will need to master in order to play the piano in their classrooms"--

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Written to meet the needs of thousands of students and pre-professional singers participating in production workshops and classes in opera and musical theater, Acting for Singers leads singing performers step by step from the studio or classroom through audition and rehearsals to a successful performance. Using a clear, systematic, positive approach, this practical guide explains how to analyze a script or libretto, shows how to develop a character building on material in the score, and gives the singing performer the tools to act believably. More than just a "how-to" acting book, however, Acting for Singers also addresses the problems of concentration, trust, projection, communication, and the self-doubt that often afflicts singers pursuing the goal of believable performance. Part I establishes the basic principles of acting and singing together, and teaches the reader how to improvise as a key tool to explore and develop characters. Part II teaches the singer how to analyze theatrical work for rehearsing and performing. Using concrete examples from Carmen and West Side Story, and imaginative exercises following each chapter, this text teaches all singers how to be effective singing actors.
