I'm currently looking for a good music theory reference book. Any suggestions?
There's a book out called The Art of Practicing
. I found it at the library; I'm buying myself a copy next time I'm at a bookstore that stocks it.
Victor Borge's books "My Favorite Intermissions" and "My Favorite Comedies In Music" are oldies but goodies.
Okay, these are books written for children, but they count! I also found Alligators and Music
at the library. It's another guide to the instruments of the orchestra, but a bit more sophisticated than other such books for children I've seen, despite the silly-sounding title. The Philharmonic Gets Dressed
is rather amusing too. (I first found that one on a bookshelf while babysitting!)
