Wee Sing: Nursery Rhymes and Lullabies, Beall, Pamela Conn; Nipp, Susan Hagen
4 Beall, Pamela Conn; Nipp, Susan Hagen Wee Sing: Nursery Rhymes and Lullabies
Australia Budget Books 1989 Reprint Stapled Pictorial Cover Good 12mo Nancy Klein 
63 pages including drawings. How many times have you wanted to sing a song to your child and found you could not remember the words? This has happened to us so many times that we decided to compile a book of our favourite songs and fingerplays to share with our forgetful friends and their wee ones. Music can create a special closeness and joy to those who experience it together. However, for a child, there is more to music than mere enjoyment. Language development, muscular co-ordination, body awareness, rhythmic proficiency, auditory discrimination and self-confidence are a few of the benefits acquired from an early exposure to music. The young child is eager for musical and rhythmic experiences, thus providing a perfect time to introduce songs and fingerplays. Music can also provide a positive resource for approaching those crisis situations with children. As the hour of waiting in the doctor’s office is drawing to a critical climax, nimble those fingers, begin “Three Little Monkeys” and feel the knot in your stomach untie. Or, as the road sign reads 20 more kilometres, bellow out “a chick, chick here” and watch the scowl on Dad’s face disappear as he joins in with “a chick, chick there.” Music may be the answer in moving from crisis to calm. We want to thank our many friends who have contributed to this book. For them, and for you, we hope Wee Sing will bring many special, enjoyable times with your wee ones.

You Can Make Music! It's Never Too Late to Start, Ben-Tovim, Atarah; Boyd, Douglas
5 Ben-Tovim, Atarah; Boyd, Douglas You Can Make Music! It's Never Too Late to Start
UK Victor Gollancz 1986 0575037830 / 9780575037830 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
143 pages. Have you ever wished that you could play a musical instrument? Maybe you started to learn but gave up in frustration, believing you were 'no good at music'. Perhaps you were told at school that you were 'unmusical' or 'tone deaf'. , Atarah Ben-Tovim and Douglas Boyd maintain that nearly every adult is musical enough to experience the deep satisfaction of playing an instrument. They stress that age is no hindrance tolearning and may even be a positive advantage. From a unique, ten years' research programme, they have developed a practical and reliable system of testing musical aptitude; and they have shown that most people who fail on an instrument do so because it was wrongly selected. This book enables adults to use the same step-by-step approach as the authors' previous and highly successful book, "The Right Instrument for Your Child". Charts and questionnaires tell you if now is the right time to begin learning an instrument. They also assess your latent musical ability; compare the advantages and disadvantages of different instruments; and, finally, reveal the instrument to which you are physically and temperamentally best suited and which most easily fits in with your current lifestyle. Having selected the right instrument you will need a wide range of information on purchasing it and finding a teacher. For this, the Beginners' Information Pack at the back of the book is an invaluable aid. Atarah Ben-Tovim and Douglas Boyd are the ideal pair to demystify music and to understand beginners’ problems. Atarah was a child progidy on the flute, while Douglas Boyd, a brilliant linguist, was a musical drop-out. He gave up the piano after three years of agony yet went on to spend 20 fulfilling years in the music business.

The Role of Rock, Don Hibbard
11 Don Hibbard The Role of Rock
U.S.A. Prentice Hall 1983 0137824416 / 9780137824410 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
216 indexed pages. From its inception in the 1950s to the arrival of New Wave in the 1980s. rock 'n' roll has had an enormous impact on American youth and culture. Sex, drugs, the anti-war movement - rock has revolutionized many facets of society. Here the extent of rock's impact is evaluated and the role of rock analyzed, from 1955 to the present. What emerges is a new understanding of the motivations behind rock, its influence on audiences, and its interrelationships with society. Rock as an art form is a central theme, and in this book its development through established genres and performers is traced. But this is not just a rock encyclopedia; musical and sociological analyses flesh out the chronological framework. Rock is defined not only as music, but as a social phenomenon as well. From this viewpoint, rock is seen as a vehicle for youthful rebellion, and non conformity as a symbol for a new world view. The authors grapple with these ideas and succeed in unearthing a fascinating assessment of the role of rock. As they do, it suddenly becomes clear that though the revolution of the 1960s has passed, rock made something significant happen in our society - and the impact of that event still influences our lives today. Specially featured in this book is an extensive discography that covers not only rock 'n' roll but the blues, gospel, country, rhythm and blues, folk. and reggae as well.
