Item description for Tipbook - Piano: The Best Guide to Your Instrument by Hugo Pinksterboer...
The Tipbook Series books are handy, accessible, thorough and convenient guides for players who want to get the most out of their instrument. They are written in collaboration with and proofread by musicians, teachers, technicians and other experts - for beginners, students and advanced players. Features include: lessons, teachers and practicing * all jargon explained * basic background information * price indications * the history and the family of the instrument * and more. The piano book covers topics such as selecting and play-testing pianos, player pianos, and related instruments, maintenance and the basics on tuning, as well as a pianist's glossary. "Technical information presented in commendably easy to understand language; Totally recommended; amazingly comprehensive." (Jazz Journal) "An excellent and convenient reference tool ... a valuable range of differing opinions on so many aspects, obviously the fruits of collaboration with many experts. A worthwhile addition to any pianist's library." (Australian Music Teacher Magazine) "Comprehensive and superbly organized effort; comfortable to handle, visually attractive, and eminently readable. The Tipbook series is a splendid addition to the music field. The most striking characteristic, to this reviewer, is the way in which the material combines conciseness with solid content. A short, 'how-to' manual always runs the risk of being shallow; Tipbooks avoid that pitfall adroitly and consistently. We highly recommend this series." (Dr. William Leland, PianoEducation.org)
