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!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“These 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. ” —Library Media Connection
Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Music is an integral part of every person's life, whether they claim to be a fan of any particular musical genre or not. Children are especially drawn to music. The upbeat tempo and fun words accompanying most children's songs inspire children to sing along and dance to the beat. Directed toward older children with a clear desire to learn more about music, Green presents the basics of music in a straightforward manner that is simple enough for young children to understand and engaging enough to ensnare older children's interest. While the content will appeal to young children, the text is presented in a rather dense fashion that may be daunting to beginning readers. The colorful images will images will capture children's attentions, but less experienced readers will need assistance with the text. A cute little poster of each of the musical characters introduced in the text accompanies the small book, which is part of "Basher Basics" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
