Making Music: Piano (Paperback)
By Kate Riggs

A primary prelude to the piano, including what the keyboard instrument looks and sounds like, basic instructions on how to play it, and the kinds of music that feature it.

Labeled images assist in identification of common components as this series describes the featured instrument’s sounds and workings. A brief history of the instrument across world cultures puts it in context with others of its kind, and each title concludes with a spotlight on a famous musician who plays the instrument today.

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.
