Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
The ability to create music is a uniquely human talent. Every culture on Earth has developed music suitable to its history and customs and while each society has created different types of music, the instruments used to create that music are quite similar. Pianos are the most easily recognizable instruments and are found the world over. Easily adaptable to any musical style, pianos and keyboard instruments can be found around the world and in every type of musical group. In the past hundred years, electronic pianos and keyboards have been developed and become popular, making keyboard instruments even more prominent in orchestras and bands. Ganeri covers a dozen different types of keyboard instruments including organs, harpsichords, and hand held portable types of keyboard instruments like the accordion or melodica. Fully illustrated with images and diagrams of several keyboard instruments, the text gives a comprehensive overview of keyboard instruments and is a suitable starting point for any child interested in learning to play an instrument. The text is part of the "How the World Makes Music" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
