Pictures and Beyond, Book 1J1031
This collection gives students a taste of the avante-garde musical language of our time. Of the 25 pieces, most are two pages while some are 8-10 measures long. Spotlighting a variety of musical elements encourages students to explore their imagination. Modern techniques such as "silently press L.H. notes and keep them down the entire piece"? from Whispering Harmonics, or "tap the rim of the fallboard"? in Pecking and Tapping, "choose your own tempo"? are some of the adventurous suggestions featured in this 32 page book.
