Universal Method for Saxophone
Commonly referred to as "The Saxophone Bible," Paul DeVille's "Universal Method for Saxophone" is considered the trusted training method for aspiring and serious saxophone players. From how to play your first note to mastering advanced concert pieces, "Universal Method for Saxophone" offers exercises and advice for every stage of learning, making it both an excellent guide for the saxophonist's musical journey and an indispensable tool for instructors. DeVille's work covers everything a dedicated saxophone student needs to learn to develop mastery. He explains the components of the instrument itself, tuning, tone production, fingering, breath control, playing low and high ranges, scales, intervals, and much more. As the accomplished saxophonist and author Sam Sadigursky wrote in his review of the top saxophone books of all time (in which he rated "Universal Method for Saxophone" the number one choice), "If you look at the first 20 pages of this 320-page book, it appears to be for beginners, but it quickly moves into some of the best technical and musical workouts that exist in any book. There are etudes by countless composers, slow pieces to develop sound and phrasing, short technical exercises that target the thorny parts of the saxophone mechanism, classical arias, pieces in all twelve keys, and rhythmic and articulation exercises." "Universal Method for Saxophone" has served generations of saxophone players-including some of the greats-well, and it will continue to be relied upon long into the future. Find out why it sets the standard for saxophone education.

The Crooked Stovepipe
Named for a popular local fiddle tune, The Crooked Stovepipe is a rollicking, detailed, first-ever study of the indigenous fiddle music and social dancing enjoyed by the Gwich'in Athapaskan Indians and other tribal groups in northeast Alaska, the Yukon, and the northwest territories. Though the music has obvious roots in the British Isles, French Canada, and the American South, the Gwich'in have used it in shaping their own aesthetic, which is apparent in their choice of fiddle tunings, bowing techniques, foot clogging, and a distinctively stratified tune repertoire. Craig Mishler treats this rural subarctic artistic tradition as a distinctive regional style akin to Cajun, bluegrass, or string-band music. He uses convergence theory as the framework for showing how this aesthetic came about. His skillful use of personal anecdotes, interviews, music examples, dance diagrams, and photographs will appeal to general readers interested in folk music and dance, as well as to specialists.

The Dramatic Method of Teaching
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: ... chapter viii geography the geography lesson gave us no trouble to dramatize and was particularly well adapted for being played as a game. The geography game began by being played in the desks with sand-modeling trays, and drawing in colors. Children would model a county or part of a country and cut out paper lighthouses, make paper boats and bridges or paper animals, and place them standing upright in the sand. Then, in turn, they would talk about them with their teacher. Again they would make colored drawings (of their own--each child originating according to his own mental impressions) to illustrate the lessons on towns or districts which had been given to them. For instance, one child, to illustrate a lesson on Reading, had drawn a large factory with horses and wagons outside. This, he explained, was a biscuit factory. Another large building appeared at the end of a roadway represented by two wavy lines. This he had labeled a jail--and so on. Our next step in the direction of geography games was suggested by a little Grade iii pupil. I discovered her one wet dinner hour with the map of the world spread out on the floor and a ring of small, eager children kneeling around it. She had a little black doll in a tiny toy boat on wheels, and she was pretending to bring it on a voyage from South Africa to England. All the while she kept up a string of sentences in squeaky broken English, supposed to be spoken by the doll. Incidentally and unconsciously she was giving her small audience a splendid idea of the various interesting things and places passed, and even climatic conditions; for she made the doll shiver when he got into colder latitudes. Funniest of all, when she landed him at the London Docks, she produced a little tin toy railway...
