1 Dr Libby's Women's Wellness Wisdom
Dr. Libby Weaver New Zealand Little Green Frog Publishing 2016 0473360888 / 9780473360887 Soft cover New Book 
The latest book by eight times number one best-selling author Dr Libby, Women's Wellness Wisdom, is, quite simply, the book that every woman needs to read. In this unique approach to wellness, designed to specifically address the issues that women of all ages face, readers gain a deep understanding of their body and what it needs in order to not just survive but to thrive. Often, we are simply told to eat "healthily" because it is "good for us." Rarely does a book this beautiful explain the processes of the body, and how they're all interdependent on each other, while offering real guidance on how we can support ourselves in such succinct and easy to understand language. From over two decades of research, Dr Libby takes all the guesswork out of being a woman, providing insight into the questions that plague western women around the world, including: why some people emotionally eat and how to end this, why our skin breaks out and why we might lose our hair, how estrogen and progesterone affect our bodies and our minds, why we believe 'if I don't do it, it won't get done', why we store body fat in a certain place and what we can do about it, why our liver is the number one organ to look after, and why we have big conversations at night, rather than at breakfast. With interactive worksheets, real-life examples and step-by-step guides to making life-transforming changes, Women's Wellness Wisdom is both practical and inspiring. Illuminating how women can thrive in today's fast- paced modern world, and filled from front to back with Dr Libby's unique blend of nutrition, biochemical science and emotional care, this beautifully illustrated book is truly the definitive guide for women about looking after their bodies, minds and hearts.

4 Know Your Birds: Australia's Most Common Birds
Louise Egerton Australia New Holland Publishers 2004 1877069132 / 9781877069130 Soft cover New Book 
"Ok, so you can tell a pigeon from a seagull but what about a Magpie from a Currawong? Or a native Noisy Miner from an introduced Indian or Common Myna? There are over 750 species of birds in Australia, so it's not surprising that most of us give up trying to know them all. Know Your Birds narrows the field to Australia's best known birds, those you are most likely to see around our towns and cities. Between the pages of this book - no matter where you live in Australia - you will find a great many familiar birds. Each of the 80 entries features a photographic portrait of a well-known bird. From these alone you will be able to identify most of the birds that you see. The accompanying text is all about how these birds live: their foibles, habits, social lives and domestic arrangements. You'll be amazed at just how different from one another their lifestyles are." About the Author: Louise Egerton is a former editor for the natural history publisher, Reed Books, and the author of Know Your Birds..

Mark Gibson and Morna Robinson and Jane Stavrinoudis Australia Accent Publishing 2008 1876355115 / 9781876355111 3rd Edition Soft cover New Book 
The Accent Piano Series features a vibrant approach that has been specifically developed for the older beginner student. As with the other Encore beginner series, students learn to play hands together from the first lesson. It is suitable for both private and group lessons. One of the aims of this two book series is to rapidly develop foundation piano and theory skills so that students can graduate to the Achiever Piano Series in a timely way. The inclusion of comprehensive worksheets ensures a thorough understanding of music notation, terms and signs. The worksheets directly relate to concepts covered in the piano pieces to ensure practical skills are always connected to musical knowledge. The inclusion of a broad range of musical styles guarantees a rich and diverse learning experience. The world-class backing tracks provide outstanding aural models. The inclusion of practice and performance speeds allows for a variety of learning stages. THE CURRICULUM The Accent Piano Series uses the same whole-pattern learning approach as the other Encore on Keys courses. This results in faster learning and the development of musical intelligence. Technical skills are developed through Finger Zips and Finger Taps. These are common to the Accent and Primary Piano Series. Finger Zips are micro patterns that become the building blocks for larger pieces. They assist students to build an aural library of musical units and provide a sequenced approach to technical proficiency. Finger Taps help beginner students acquire finger sequencing and finger dexterity skills without the burden of reading complex music notation. They prepare the way for smooth transitions when moving onto more complex piano pieces. As with the other Encore on Keys courses, the Accent Piano Series is based on a strong rhythmic and harmonic foundation. Rhythm Taps are used to develop two-part rhythm reading and piano specific coordination skills. They may be played on a variety of percussion instruments or be combined with chord playing to broaden the skill base. Essential keyboard harmony elements are embedded throughout the two-book series. Students who successfully complete the Accent Piano Series advance to the Achiever Piano Series.

16 Encore on Keys Achiever Series 1 Piano/Keyboard - CD Included
Mark Gibson and Morna Robinson and Jane Stavrinoudis Australia Accent Publishing 2011 1876355077 / 9781876355074 4th Edition Soft cover New Book 
The Achiever Piano Series is thoroughly rewarding. It is the follow-on course from either the Junior Piano, Primary Piano or Accent Piano Series. This four book program takes students to a higher level of artistry, technical proficiency and creative flair. It is suitable for a wide variety of age groups and includes styles that range from Baroque to Rock. The authentic recordings allow students to play along with a rock band, jazz trio, orchestra and other combinations. Keyboard harmony is one of the foundation elements of the Achiever Piano Series, and this is what sets it apart from other piano methods. Rather than simply playing sequences of notes, students learn to understand the musical structures that underpin everything they play. This extends to transposing, reading chord charts and improvising at the piano. Other practical musicianship skills include playing by ear, sight reading and exploring different voicings when playing standard chord progressions. THE CURRICULUM The range of tonalities and chord structures explored in each of the Achiever levels is carefully selected to ensure there is a clear relationship between the solo performance pieces, scales, cadence chords and other keyboard harmony elements. This integration ensures that the students gain a thorough understanding of the music theory that underpins each piece, skill or chord progression. Ensemble playing completes the learning cycle with students becoming equally proficient performing individually or as part of a group. Book 1 initially focuses on root position chords, with inversions introduced in the other levels. By the end of the series, students are able to play and recognise a vast number of chord shapes both within keys and in isolation. This gives them the ability to learn pieces faster because underlying structures are immediately apparent. It is also one of several ways in which Achiever Piano bridges traditional and modern styles. Achiever Challenges are used to extend learning by encouraging students to think 'outside the score'. Challenges may include playing a piece in several keys, changing between major and minor modes or swapping the parts between the hands. This in turn, leads to improvisation and composition. The Achiever curriculum is carefully graded so performance pieces and technical skills are closely aligned with several examination syllabi such as the AMEB and ANZCA. At the completion of the series, students will have achieved a playing standard equivalent to Grade 3 or 4 depending on the particular requirements of each examination board.

18 Encore on Keys Achiever Series 3 Piano/Keyboard - CD Included
Mark Gibson and Morna Robinson and Jane Stavrinoudis Australia Accent Publishing 2014 1876355093 / 9781876355098 Revised Edition Soft cover New Book 
The Achiever Piano Series is thoroughly rewarding. It is the follow-on course from either the Junior Piano, Primary Piano or Accent Piano Series. This four book program takes students to a higher level of artistry, technical proficiency and creative flair. It is suitable for a wide variety of age groups and includes styles that range from Baroque to Rock. The authentic recordings allow students to play along with a rock band, jazz trio, orchestra and other combinations. Keyboard harmony is one of the foundation elements of the Achiever Piano Series, and this is what sets it apart from other piano methods. Rather than simply playing sequences of notes, students learn to understand the musical structures that underpin everything they play. This extends to transposing, reading chord charts and improvising at the piano. Other practical musicianship skills include playing by ear, sight reading and exploring different voicings when playing standard chord progressions. THE CURRICULUM The range of tonalities and chord structures explored in each of the Achiever levels is carefully selected to ensure there is a clear relationship between the solo performance pieces, scales, cadence chords and other keyboard harmony elements. This integration ensures that the students gain a thorough understanding of the music theory that underpins each piece, skill or chord progression. Ensemble playing completes the learning cycle with students becoming equally proficient performing individually or as part of a group. Book 1 initially focuses on root position chords, with inversions introduced in the other levels. By the end of the series, students are able to play and recognise a vast number of chord shapes both within keys and in isolation. This gives them the ability to learn pieces faster because underlying structures are immediately apparent. It is also one of several ways in which Achiever Piano bridges traditional and modern styles. Achiever Challenges are used to extend learning by encouraging students to think 'outside the score'. Challenges may include playing a piece in several keys, changing between major and minor modes or swapping the parts between the hands. This in turn, leads to improvisation and composition. The Achiever curriculum is carefully graded so performance pieces and technical skills are closely aligned with several examination syllabi such as the AMEB and ANZCA. At the completion of the series, students will have achieved a playing standard equivalent to Grade 3 or 4 depending on the particular requirements of each examination board.

20 Encore on Keys Junior Series 1 Piano/Keyboard - CD and Flash Cards Included
Mark Gibson and Morna Robinson and Jane Stavrinoudis Australia Accent Publishing 2007 1876355034 / 9781876355036 Revised 4th Edition Soft cover New Book 
The Junior Piano Series features the lovable Onkie characters, multiple learning layers and wonderful music. Our holistic course develops a broad range of musical skills that extend well beyond playing the piano or keyboard. Children meet and play their instrument right from the start. They sing along with the music, participate in story telling and games, play percussion instruments and engage with the music through gestures and movement activities. Flash cards ensure that music literacy is developed from day one. Encore's unique whole-pattern methodology is utilised throughout this series. It promotes faster, more accurate learning and encourages students to feel and think in musical units. This ensures that children develop musical intelligence as early as possible. The multi layered approach of the Junior Piano Series supports all learning styles. It builds confidence in children because every aspect of learning the piano is purposeful, stimulating and engaging. THE CURRICULUM As with Kinder Beat, the Junior Piano Series features a progressive curriculum with a strong rhythmic foundation. This allows students to quickly acquire an appreciation of the style, phrasing and key rhythmic units in the earliest stages of learning a new piece. Gross motor and fundamental physical coordination skills are developed through body percussion and Dalcroze-inspired movement activities. Finer motor skills and piano specific techniques are rehearsed on Encore Keyboard Mats before they are transferred onto the piano. This sequence is usually achieved within the one lesson. Technical foundation skills are integrated throughout the series. This starts with good posture and physical balance. Playing hands together begins in the first lesson, with each new piece adding another layer of musical and technical complexity. Essential keyboard harmony skills underpin the entire series and promote musical versatility. By the end of the series, students are able to play in different keys, transpose at the piano, play basic chord progressions, read notation, play by ear and perform with confidence. Students who successfully complete the Junior Piano Series advance to the Achiever Piano Series.
