              The harp is the quintessential wedding instrument. Its romantic image and sound make it ideal for the special day which represents a landmark in the life of the bride and groom and their families. The music they choose will stay with them in memory and meaning for a lifetime. Thi...s book contains a variety of classic, traditional, and ethnic music, some pieces you will recognize as standards, and some you may never have heard before. Selections in this book may be played on any style or type of harp. These tunes and pieces have been chosen because they are in the public domain, and also because they could make the difference between an ordinary wedding and a very special one. Divided into four sections: Preludes, Processionals, Meditations, and Recessionals, this music offers more than enough choices to get you through an entire wedding ceremony and reception. These arrangements are interesting to the player as well as the listener and take full advantage of the harmonic capabilities of the lever harp. Includes important and useful tips and suggestions regarding music selections, fees for services, contracts, proper attire, etiquette, and more.

              The primary emphasis of this method book is developing the three essential concepts for learning to play a mallet instrument: (1) Learning the names of the notes on the music staff; (2) Learning the value of the notes and how to count them; and (3) Learning where the notes are lo...cated on the mallet instrument keyboard. As new notes are introduced on the lines and spaces of the music staff, the note name, note value, method of counting, and location of the note on the mallet instrument is clearly illustrated. Each of the essential music elements is presented clearly and sequentially. Each presentation is followed by several exercises and original melodies that are specifically designed to develop reading ability, technique, and musicianship. Every lesson builds on those that came before, giving students a chance to practice what they have learned and reinforcing skills that will be used over and over. Also included in this method are seven elementary solos written for marimba, xylophone, or vibes. These solos contain all of the newly learned music concepts that were presented throughout the book. The seven solos are ideal for band tryouts, recitals, and solo and ensemble contest.

              Wes Montgomery took jazz guitar to a new level when he came to the public's attention in the late 1950's. Known for his fluid lines and his big jazz guitar sound, Wes influenced thousands of guitarists in the styles of jazz, blues, and rock. This book will present some of the sol...oing techniques that Wes used as well has present many melodic ideas (lines) similar to the way he played over the chord progression in many jazz standards. Because the major and minor ii-V-I progression are the most widely used chord progression in jazz standards, the lines in this text will work over these progressions. The accompanying CD contains many play-along tracks (vamps of one chord and vamps around the circle of fourths) that the student should use to practice the material in one key and then master it in all twelve keys. By learning the techniques used by Wes Montgomery, guitarists will add to their own improvising arsenal. As improvising musicians add to their collection of musical ideas, their ability to express themselves completely increases. Have fun studying these ideas and applying them in improvised solos. Also available in Japanese from ATN, Inc.
