Provide your students with an intelligent, inspiring overview of the many possibilities of beautiful sound production at the piano with this artfully written and illustrated comic book. Author/pianist Peter Coraggio and illustrator Jon J. Murakami have collaborated to create the Art of Piano Performance Series of five comic books: Imagery in Music (5895610); Musical Style (5983557); Pedaling - "The Soul of the Piano" (5558044); The Spectrum of Expressive Touches (5558051); and last but certainly not least, Perfect Practice -or- Chunks, Clumps, Hunks, Clods - Blocks Slivers, Slices, and Globs (5558069). These comic books are nothing short of brilliant as they effectively convey the true art of piano performance in a way we can all relate. Readers will get to know Maestro Profondo (musician extraordinaire), Musabella (Profondo's lovely teaching assistant), Agitato (neophyte student), and their musical friends while becoming inspired, motivated, and educated. Recommended for piano students from ages 10 to 100 - from beginners to advanced players!
