Book 5 accompanies Technique at Your Fingertips Book 5 which focuses on early advanced level classical repertoire etc. The repertoire selected includes transcriptions from piano, guitar, and cello classical repertoire, including works by historical women composers. The arrangement have focused primarily on making it possible to play these on lever harp, but these include pedal markings as well. Some of the choices of note division between the hands reflects the requirements of the lever harp. Some of the works here have not yet been transcribed for lever harp, so it is adding to the advanced repertoire of the instrument and pushes the boundaries of what is possible to play.

This book is full of essential information for students, teachers, scholars, and directors at every level."--Rick McCullough, Florida State University "An interesting and unique book that shows both commonalities and divergent opinions that guide all ballet teaching professionals."--John White Jr., author of Advanced Principles in Teaching Classical Ballet "What a wonderful adventure to open a book and read about so many of the world's finest dance luminaries.

Drawing activities, art instruction, and advice for artists and non-artists alike. Urban sketching--the process of drawing on the go as a regular practice--is a hot trend in the drawing world. It's also a practical necessity for creatively minded people in a busy world. In this aspirational guide, self-taught French artist France Belleville-Van Stone emboldens readers to craft a ritual of their own and devote more time to art, even if it's just 10 minutes a day. She offers motivation to move beyond the comfort zone, as well as instruction on turning rough sketches into finished work. Belleville Van-Stone learned how to draw through her own daily practice and knows first-hand how hard it is to find time to incorporate creativity into a busy life. She encourages and teaches us how to do it with advice and guidance such as: · An A-to-Z list of daily sketch prompts, from airports to bananas, faces to hands, meetings and workplaces · Tips on what drawing supplies you can and should have--and how to carry them around · Sections on accepting mistakes, drawing with limited resources, and redefining completion · Plusses and minuses of going digital, including apps, styluses, and brushes For those of us who dream of drawing in the minutes between school and work, bathtime and bedtime, and waking and walking out the door, the practical advice in Sketch! is a revelation. By sharing her own creative process, Belleville-Van Stone Sketch inspires artists both established and aspiring to rethink their daily practice, sketch for the pure joy of it, and document their lives and the world around them.
