Since it first appeared in the 1930s, the concise, clear content of the best-selling "A Tune A Day" series has revolutionised music-making in the classroom and the home. C Paul Herfurth's original books have been completely rewritten with new music and the latest in instrumental technique for a new generation of musicians. The series has the same logical, gentle pace and keen attention to detail, but with a host of innovations! The DVD and audio CD - with performances and backing tracks - will make practice even more fun and exciting. And the explanatory diagrams and photographs will help the student achieve the perfect technique and tone. This book features: advice on equipment; instructions for effective technique and comfortable posture; explanatory section of reading music; easy-to-follow lessons on clear, uncluttered pages; demonstration DVD introducing basic techniques and notation; audio CD with a virtuoso performance, backing tracks and audio examples; great music in a variety of styles; and tests to check progress and comprehension.
