Description

Basher Basics: Music created and illustrated by Simon Basher, written by Dan Green: Basher brings his signature pop-life style to a whole new topic in this one-stop guide to the building blocks of music. Meet Rhythm and Pitch, who know how to hold a tune; Time Signature, who loves to keep control; clever Chord, who works patterns to great effect; Brass, the powerful loudmouth of the instrument types; and Classical, Pop and Electronic from a crew of sweet characters. The personality-based explanations will make it easy to remember the essential concepts behind musical expression. You'll never look at the orchestra or listen to a piece of music in the same way again!show more

Review quote

Library Media ConnectionThese compact books are more packed with content than their cartoonish covers imply. Each book is illustrated with brightly colored graphics. The content is directed toward an older, hipper, pre-adolescent reader. Despite their detail-rich content, the writing tone is casual and accessible. These handy books serve as reference books on their respective topics; a teacher would appreciate a set in the ready-reference section of their classroom. They are good books to hand to a student who needs a fresh approach to the topic for clarification. These compact books are more packed with content than their cartoonish covers imply.
