Norman, I’m extremely impressed with your textbooks as they are outlined. They seem to bridge the often insurmountable chasm between pedantic academia and practical application. The cited scores that are annotated are of excellent benefit for those from novice to professional. I, myself, have wanted to write books on music, but feel inadequate for the task. It’s a huge responsibility to supply proper quality materials for those who would use it to learn, teach, or reference.
Just scanned this. Brilliant! This book is complete in itself and not just a companion to Persichetti! ...thanks a million for this. I'm going to post your link on my page.
What a terrific book. I love the colorful annotations and great usage examples. Thank you Norman!
Thank you for doing this and for your dedication to excellent teaching
...really appreciate you :)
