A Musical Library-"Heads will Roll"
Theme Thursday is "Library" and I can't tell you how funny it is to stand on a piano bench and have all these faces staring up at me! These are some of the people in my music library. When I use these books with my students we call them the Talking Head books. Many publishers use head shots as covers. As I look at this picture after I've taken it, I chose a lot of dead white guys. Oops, sorry, Clara. That's not all I teach though, it's just that the contemporary pedagogical covers use "kid-friendly" art, comic book or Holiday Inn landscapes.
I get to go to a seminar the next few days-I'll tell you all about it when I can!
