2 The Strat in the Attic 2: More Thrilling Stories of Guitar Archaeology
Deke Dickerson USA Voyageur Press Inc 2014 0760346879 / 9780760346877 Hardcover New Book 
More astounding stories of rare guitar finds and the music legends who owned them.Do you dream of finding a 1954 Stratocaster or 1952 Gibson Les Paul online, at a garage sale, or in the local penny saver? How about virtually rubbing elbows with one of your favorite rock legends? Following up his first-of-its-kind "The Strat in the Attic," musician, journalist, and "guitarchaeologist" Deke Dickerson shares the stories behind dozens of more astounding finds including: A rarer-than-hens-teeth 1966 Hallmark Swept-Wing that originally belonged to Robbie Krieger of the Doors, stashed away in an attic in Alaska for forty years!A crazy-valuable 1958 Gibson Flying V belonging to a Chicago bluesman--who, it turns out, also happens to have an equally rare 1958 Gibson Explorer!An out-of-the-blue, a "to whom it may concern" email leads the author to a trailer park in Salem, Oregon, where one of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys' original 1940's Epiphone Emperor archtops is waiting to be purchased for a song!Luthier R.C. Allen relates the tales of buying Nat "King" Cole Trio guitarist Oscar Moore's Stromberg Master 400 archtop and of being gifted a 1953 Standel amp from Merle Travis!Buddy Merrill, the amazingly talented guitarist from the Lawrence Welk show, gives his 1970 Micro-Frets Huntington to the author, but only if he "promises to PRACTICE."Photos of the guitars and other exciting memorabilia round out a package that no vintage-guitar aficionado will want to be without! "Deke Dickerson's love for guitars and his genius for finding some of the rarest birds in the musical aviary is matched by his not-inconsiderable writing chops. The man knows how to tell a great story."--Jonathan Kellerman

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.

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.

Encore on Keys Achiever Series 3 Piano/Keyboard - CD Included, Mark Gibson and Morna Robinson and Jane Stavrinoudis
15 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.

Encore on Keys Junior Series 1 Piano/Keyboard - CD and Flash Cards Included, Mark Gibson and Morna Robinson and Jane Stavrinoudis
17 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.
