The Art of Piano Performance is a series of comic books perfect for use as humorous teaching aids and piano teachers. The comic book form has an immediate appeal to young adults and adolescents. Pianists and teachers will enjoy the "in jokes" within the illustrations and situations. All musical terms are defined when used while the illustrations, while humorous, present serious pedagogical information in a light-hearted, understandable manner. Imagery In Music - Italian Expressive Terms of Tempo, Character, and Spirit. Traditional piano instruction most often begins with the study of musical notation and grammar, but often does not emphasize the most fundamental component of expressive interpretation: the composer's verbal instructions for tempo, character, and spirit. Join in the fun as characters Maestro Profondo, Musabella, Agitato, Super-Note, Musetta, and Bravo learn to interpret Italian musical terms!
