What is Music?
Music is rhythm.
Music is melody.
Music is feeling...
and oh, so much more.
In this richly layered compendium, Aliki shares her keen insight about music and all its themes and variations. Ah, Music! is about composers and instruments. It's about artists and performers. It's about history -- from the earliest music through classical, modern, jazz, and popular times. It's about diversity and pleasure.
If you have a love of music in your bones, or if you are just learning, or if you are about to play in your first recital, it's about you. Ah, music!
Aliki is the well-loved author and illustrator of many best-selling picture books. Her books includeThe Gods and Goddesses of Olympus.
