M Is for Music (Children's Book)
by Kathleen Krull, Stacy Innerst

Music and the alphabet have always gone together. Don't kids learn their letters by singing the ABCs?

But you've never seen--or heard--a musical alphabet like this one. Beloved tunes. Unusual instruments. Legendary virtuosos. From anthems to zydeco, the language of music and the music of language harmonize in one superb symphony. It's a funky fusion for songsters of all ages!

Playful text opens up the world of music to the youngest readers, and conversational endnotes offer older readers a springboard to further musical explorations.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
