    Document Overview:
    Making music is all about patterns. 24 Keys is designed to help you learn the unique fingering pattern that makes up each key quickly and easily through learning scales and arpeggios, and through practice exercises. It provides a unique visual guide to learning the position of the fingers in each key, so that you can make each second of practice count. We never sacrifice traditional notation. Each Scale and Arpeggio page in the book includes the traditional notation for each scale and arpeggio on the left, with our unique ‘Grid’ complementing it on the right. The correct fingering to use is shown in both traditional notation, and on ‘The Grid’. Bowing is indicated as usual in traditional notation. Our specially written Exercises concentrate on cementing intonation, and are a fun way to solidify Scales and Arpeggios. Some of our Exercises are traditional ‘Solo’ exercises, some are written as duets for student and teacher, or student and student. All of our exercises are exclusive to 24 Keys – you won’t find yet more arrangements of the same old traditional tunes here! In the exercises, expression and bowing indications are kept to the minimum, to allow these to be left to the discretion of the teacher. Key Facts about this book * 68 Pages of Scales, Arpeggios, Exercises, and Reference Pages * Many fun practice ideas * Written in a friendly and informative style * A unique visual way of learning that saves you time and energy

  • The Philosophy of Improvisation
    The Philosophy of Improvisation

    $22.50

    Document Overview:
    Improvisation is usually either lionized as an ecstatic experience of being in the moment or disparaged as the thoughtless recycling of clichés. Eschewing both of these orthodoxies, The Philosophy of Improvisation ranges across the arts—from music to theater, dance to comedy—and considers the improvised dimension of philosophy itself in order to elaborate an innovative concept of improvisation. Gary Peters turns to many of the major thinkers within continental philosophy—including Heidegger, Nietzsche, Adorno, Kant, Benjamin, and Deleuze—offering readings of their reflections on improvisation and exploring improvisational elements within their thinking. Peters's wry, humorous style offers an antidote to the frequently overheated celebration of freedom and community that characterizes most writing on the subject. Expanding the field of what counts as improvisation, The Philosophy of Improvisation will be welcomed by anyone striving to comprehend the creative process.
