The Simple Flute
Author: Michel Debost, Jeanne Debost-Roth
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Drawing from his highly praised French work, Une simple flute, distinguished flutist and teacher Michel Debost has compiled a useful and imaginative introduction to playing the flute. This alphabetically arranged compendium of advice and insight covers essential topics such as breathing, articulation, and tone, but also explores "jawboning," "finger phrasing," "the little devils," and other quirky and vexing aspects of flute playing. Full of practical advice on technique and axioms that lend moral support during tough practice sessions, The Simple Flute will be a welcome addition to any serious or novice flutist's library. In addition, the book includes original exercises such as "Debost's Scale Game," making it an excellent resource for flute teachers. Debost concludes each essay with "In a nutshell" and "Please refer to" boxes that make the book easy to browse, dog-ear, and return to again and again. Offering concise, common-sense solutions for flutists of all levels, this book is an ideal reference guide on flute performance.

The Female Nude
Author: Lynda Nead
Anyone who examines the history of Western art must be struck by the prevalence of images of the female body. More than any other subject, the female nude connotes `art'. The framed image of a female body, hung on the walls of an art gallery, is an icon of Western culture, a symbol of civilization and accomplishment. But how and why did the female nude acquire this status? The Female Nude brings together, in an entirely new way, analysis of the historical tradition of the female nude and discussion of recent feminist art, and by exploring the ways in which acceptable and unacceptable images of the female body are produced and maintained, renews recent debates on high culture and pornography. The Female Nude represents the first feminist survey of the most significant subject in Western art. It reveals how the female nude is now both at the centre and at the margins of high culture. At the centre, and within art historical discourse, the female nude is seen as the visual culmination of enlightenment aesthetics; at the edge, it risks losing its repectability and spilling over into the obscene.

Comparable to a course, the reader will be guided step by step from the grassroots to more advanced and complex ways of writing. Here, it is not intended to simply float some apodictic rules that lack proper explanation. On the contrary, the explanations given will cover the questions time and again asked by students as well as the issues arising when working in an artistic situation. Through refined verbalization and a vast number of musical examples this book should contribute to a clear understanding of these guidelines, and foster the student's ability to realize the issues when arranging.

"Understanding and interpreting chord symbols are part of the basics of playing Jazz music. The piano is the ideal instrument to help you to get an overview of harmonic structures and as such, is an important aid even for non-pianists. With this goal in mind, the simple and clearly structured exercises in Voicing Concepts help the student learn to improvise good-sounding voicings in typical as well as complex harmonic progressions of jazz standards and in various styles and grooves. Fundamentals about the harmonic and melodic structure of Jazz are discovered in the process."
