Description

Wynton Marsalis is a master of finding the right analogies to explain musical concepts in ways that are fun and educational. In Marsalis on Music: Why Toes Tap, Marsalis uses a basketball dribbling exercise, skipping, and hopping to demonstrate how rhythm and movement express emotions in music. He then uses two different versions of "The Nutcracker," Tchaikovsky's ballet and Ellington's jazz version, to illustrate how composers use and vary rhythms to convey different moods. Absolutely the finest music appreciation and instruction series for children available, this is a must-have for music teachers and school libraries.~Heather M. Fierst
