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. Musical Style - Introduction to the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic Eras Musical Style views the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras from different perspectives, including the spirit of the time, the characteristics of the keyboard instruments and their varied playing techniques, the leading keyboard composers, the performance venues, and the basic elements of music and interpretation that give the music of each era its distinctive character.
