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 has written and illustrated many books, both fiction and nonfiction, loved by readers throughout the world. The books were inspired by a word, an experience, or the desire to find out. Aliki says, "I'm not so great at pushing buttons, but I know things happen when you do." Aliki lives in London, England.
