TIME David Bowie
Author: Editors of TIME
Publisher: Time Inc. Books
Throughout his 50-year career, David Bowie captivated generations of fans and inspired countless performers across every creative genre. Bowie’s musical evolution – spanning styles from rock ’n’ roll to soul, funk, disco, jazz and blues – and unforgettable personae from Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke made an indelible impression on pop music and culture. Classic hits such as “Space Oddity," “Changes,” “Fame,” “Heroes,” “Let’s Dance” and “Where Are We Now?” feel as fresh today as they did when first released. In a tribute to the late legend, TIME presents a lavishly illustrated special edition tracing Bowie’s life story and legendary career. This expansive volume combines iconic photographs and materials from the Time Inc. archives – including an interview with Bowie at 50 years old – with a heartfelt foreword by famed musician and frequent collaborator Nile Rodgers, who produced Bowie’s Let’s Dance
album; remembrances from fellow artists such as Carrie Brownstein, Elton John, Lady Gaga and Kanye West; and the ultimate David Bowie playlist. Fascinating and visually compelling, David Bowie: His Life on Earth, 1947-2016
is an essential celebration of an unforgettable singular artist.
Position Pieces for Cello is designed to give students a logical and fun way to learn their way around the fingerboard. Each hand position is introduced with exercises called "Target Practice," "Geography Quiz," and "Names and Numbers." Following these exercises are tuneful cello duets which have been specifically composed to require students to play in that hand position. In this way, students gain a thorough knowledge of how to find the hand positions and, once there, which notes are possible to play. Using these pieces (with names like "I Was a Teenage Monster," "The Irish Tenor," and "I've Got the Blues, Baby"), position study on the cello has never been so much fun!
