Review

"This fabulous book will appeal to novices, professionals and everyone in—between." —André Watts



"Williams Tobias gives friendly advice on how to get into music, definitions and explanations, and offers 'time zones' to put it all in place, complete with artistic examples of those periods. A well—considered, nicely put—together guide.—St. Louis Post-Dispatch" —Dispatch

15 of 25 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on October 27, 2003
Format: Paperback
Boy, talk about taking the next step in the evolution of the "For Dummies" series! This really is a must-have for everyone, whether musicians and classical enthusiasts, or not. Dr. Tobias has written "for the masses," making everything fun and interesting, while imparting a great deal of information in a very palatable way. And the photos and illustrations are to DIE FOR. Everyone should rush out and buy copies, not only for themselves, but for all their families and friends. After all, Christmas IS just around the corner!
