Scherzo's Magical Musical Adventure is a whimsical story that opens the musical realm to children and relates it to nature, giving them a more expansive way to learn and increase awareness of our world.
Music is a multi-dimensional art form and visualization is an important ingredient of artistry.
To use a musical term in relationship to an animal creates a picture easily remembered and understood, and, of course, humor makes learning fun.
Using animals to describe emotions or conditions is not new, i.e., gentle as a lamb, happy as a lark, or busy as a bee. Each animal represented in Scherzo's Magical Musical Adventure has its own unique voice to express and communicate.
Scherzo's Magical Musical Adventure is illustrated with 23 oil paintings by the author.
