DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Bringing together the analytical, aural, and tactile activities that comprise a tonal theory curriculum, The Complete Musician, Second Edition, relies on a diverse repertoire and innovative exercises to explicitly connect theory (writing and analysis), skills (singing, playing, and dictation), and music-making outside the theory class. It provides students with a strong foundation in the principles of writing, analyzing, hearing, singing, and playing tonal harmony and enables them to understand the most important musical forms. Features of the Second Edition: * Enhanced and supplemented by five music DVDs--two packaged with the text, two with Student Workbook I, and one with Student Workbook II. These DVDs contain a total of more than sixteen hours of high-quality recorded examples--from solo piano to full orchestra--of the examples and exercises in the text and workbooks, performed by soloists and ensembles from the Eastman School of Music and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition, examples and exercises are included on the DVDs in downloadable MP3 format. * Significantly revised in order to improve general ordering between large topics (for example, the pre-dominant function is introduced earlier) and organization within chapters (particularly in Parts 1-4) * Offers new topics and expansions: a new chapter (16) devoted exclusively to the motive; new sections on analytical decision-making through Gestalt techniques (Chapters 2 and 7); lead sheet notation (Chapter 6); harmonizing florid melodies (beginning in Chapter 9); and an expanded section on musical texture and harmonic analysis (Chapter 6) * Introduces numerous analyses throughout the book, including thirteen Model Analysis sections, that provide extended analyses of canonical pieces * Includes more than 200 new examples, many from wind and brass literature * Explanations and definitions have been carefully revised for clarity, with added summary charts and step-by-step procedures * Offers new types of exercises--in both the text and in the workbooks--including exercises for single-line instrumentalists, listening exercises, and more graduated exercises * Workbook exercises are now structured in a consistent format of discrete assignments (four to eight assignments per chapter) that usually fit on one or two sheets of paper for ease in handing in to the instructor. Each assignment contains a variety of exercises, crafted for students with a wide range of abilities. Supplementary exercises are also included for further practice. * Expanded Instructor's Manual adds model solutions for more than 200 analysis and part writing exercises; each chapter includes teaching guidelines and supplementary analytical, dictation, playing, and writing exercises

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

'Classic English humour, with all the slapstick, twists and dry observations you could hope for' The Times The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . . 'This is a story about sex and drugs and Music With Rocks In. Well... ...one out of three ain’t bad.' Being sixteen is always difficult, even more so when there’s a Death in the family. After all, it's hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe. Especially if he decides to take a well-earned moment to uncover the meaning of life and discover himself in the process, so that you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld. It's lawless. It changes people. It's got a beat and you can dance to it. It's called Music With Rocks In. And it won't fade away. __________________ The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Soul Music is the third book in the Death series.

Editor: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The popularity of televised dramas from Korea and Taiwan has increased significantly since 2000. Such dramas reflect the interweaving of human romance, tragedy, and comedy with a Confucian world view that places this human conflict into a context of respect both for for one's elders and for society itself. Korean and Taiwanese televised dramas share many overlapping values but differ in how each culture typically assigns stereotypical roles to the male and female leads. Native Korean and Taiwanese viewers watch their respective dramas expecting a melding of Hollywood type conflict with an Asian worldview that seeks to assimilate this conflict into a satisfying conclusion. Viewers unfamiliar with this blend of cultures, those raised in a Western mindset, initially find it strange that the dramas' cast play out their collective angst in a manner that deviates from the Hollywood norm. I have chosen 122 Korean and Taiwanese (plus a few Chinese and Japanese) televised dramas that represent a sampling of the many hundreds of such dramas currently available for viewing in various internet web sites. Some of the dramas reviewed herein are stand alone efforts released as theatrical movies, but the majority are dramas originally released on television as weekly episodes. The number of episodes ranges from a dozen to more than eighty with each approximating one hour in length. I can assure you that I have personally watched every minute of each episode. Most of the dramas reviewed focus on the romantic interplay between the leads, but within this genre of romance there is a wide variation of sub-genres that include corporate machinations and backstabbing, time travel, Rich Male Hero falls for Poor but Beautiful Heroine, vicious in-laws, interfering sidekicks, parallel subplots, and much more. Each review provides an extensive analysis of plot, theme, and characterization, all of which are viewed in a Confucian context that reflects a social, psychological, religious, familial, and cultural backdrop. I did not "give away" any surprise endings so these reviews may be read before viewing them to decide whether a potential viewer wishes to watch them or even after viewing them to recreate the enjoyable experience while watching. The number of televised dramas increases exponentially yearly and this review guide may prove useful in providing you with sufficient past and current dramas such that you can choose wisely which types of Korean and Taiwanese dramas you like.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

From Annabeth Leong's penetrating view of the sensual, the sacred, and the profane comes an anthology of erotic tales of wonder. Passion flows, mercurial, through these eleven tales of sex, death, and rebirth. Curiosity mingles with shame, anger revels in worship, exploring desire of all types. Here are dead gods, undead starlets, and immortal creatures hungry for connection-a collection of love letters to human nature, with no easy answers among them. Instead you will find intimate legends and infinite possibility. For every dark soul pining for something beyond their grasp, there is a moment of ecstasy to tantalize the heart and mind. The stories here do not represent the safe, sane, and consensual, and no awareness of risk can prepare you for the ultimate sacrifice. Come, immerse yourself in Liquid Longing.

In this course we did not keep writing private, rather we brought it forward in order to learn from it.
