Now more than ever, the ability to sight-read fluently is an essential part of the training of musicians on an instrument. Improve your sight-reading! Violin Grade 5 is designed to help overcome the nerves that can cause sight-reading problems by giving sound technical advice and confidence boosting tips. Step-by-step, it helps the violinist to build up a complete picture of each piece, first through rhythmic and melodic exercises related to specific problems, then by the study of prepared piece with associated questions for the student to answer, and finally to the real, unprepared sight-reading test itself. Check-boxes for each stage allow both teacher and pupil to keep an eye on progress.

The first full biography of John Ogdon; a tortured genius and arguably the greatest British pianist of all time. From the beginning of his professional career as a soloist John Ogdon was hailed as a musician of rare understanding and phenomenal technical gifts. Able to play and memorize just about any score at sight, tales of his impossible exploits at the keyboard are legion. Yet Ogdon was a man of extremes and it was this very extremity, while the source of much of his gift, that also led to appalling suffering. Here was a man whose feelings were inexpressibly deep and often tormenting, and Ogdon's glory days, following his coveted Tchaikovsky prize in 1962, came to a sudden end in 1973 when he suffered a severe mental breakdown which led to his being certified insane and made patient of the Court of Protection. Over the course of several harrowing years Ogdon would spend large periods of time in and out of psychiatric wards and halfway houses. The drugs and treatments prescribed sometimes affected his coordination, and his reputation suffered as a result. Yet Ogdon's commitment to his art remained undimmed, and until the end he drew out performances of tremendous beauty and conviction from the depths of his ravaged heart. In this illuminating biography, Charles Beauclerk explores the life of a brilliantly inspired artist, for whom music was both his cross and his salvation.

From renowned guitarist and multi-Emmy-award winning composer, Brian Tarquin, comes a display-quality, full-color reference guide to guitars. The Guitar Encyclopedia begins with the history of guitars spanning back to the birth of Epiphone by a Greek immigrant and the great inventions of Les Paul, to the boom of the Rock-'n-Roll-shredder days with Ibanez guitars and the futuristic designs of the Gibson Moderne and the Randy Rhodes Polka Dot Flying V. The book also contains interviews from guitar designers such as Fender and Eastwood, as well as boutique companies such as Gander and Specimen. A far cry from other dry schematic encyclopedias, this book details the connections between different guitars and the monumental recordings that they produced. With introductions by Gary Hoey, Chris Poland (Megadeth), and Eric Shoaf (Vintage Guitar magazine), this book provides a rich and unique account of iconic guitars throughout history.

Our titles cover subjects such as graphic design, theater, branding, fine art, photography, interior design, writing, acting, film, how to start careers, business and legal forms, business practices, and more.
