Learn the techniques of a current Broadway musician as you practice and play along with a recording of a full band. Music for 15 songs - in styles ranging from jazz, bop, and swing to Dixieland, Latin, blues, and rock - and downloadable MP3s offer chances to rehearse both melody and harmony. Each song is recorded three ways:1. Practice playing melody or harmony with the title tracks, MP3s 1-15, marked TT.2. Practice playing melody with harmony accompaniment, MP3s 16-30, marked HT.3. Practice playing harmony with melody accompaniment, MP3s 31-45, marked MT.These rehearsal routines are comparable to playing a 25-minute set with a live stage band!

This book endeavours to pinpoint the relations between musical, and especially instrumental, practice and the evolving conceptions of pitch systems. It traces the development of ancient melodic notation from reconstructed origins, through various adaptations necessitated by changing musical styles and newly invented instruments, to its final canonical form. It thus emerges how closely ancient harmonic theory depended on the culturally dominant instruments, the lyre and the aulos. These threads are followed down to late antiquity, when details recorded by Ptolemy permit an exceptionally clear view. Dr Hagel discusses the textual and pictorial evidence, introducing mathematical approaches wherever feasible, but also contributes to the interpretation of instruments in the archaeological record and occasionally is able to outline the general features of instruments not directly attested. The book will be indispensable to all those interested in Greek music, technology and performance culture and the general history of musicology.
This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic, timeless works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
