Описание: Toot your own horn . . . bang a big drum, here come the music makers A harp, drum, piano, violin, guitar, and three other instruments need some color -- which you can provide. Just fill in each boldly outlined picture and place near a bright light for a dazzling glow.
Drums to have fun with, drums with magical powers, dance drums, tomtoms, water drums -- just about any type of drum you could wish to know about or make is described in this book by Bernard S. Mason, well-known crafts instructor and authority on Indians. Complete, thorough directions for making each of the various drums are given, and you may be surprised to note that many can be constructed from such simple, everyday materials as wooden kegs, flower pots, coffee cans, buckets, old inner tubes, and airplane cloth. Also drum-related articles describe drumsticks and many different kinds of rattles, and include instructions on how to make them. To the craft of drum-making Mr. Mason brings his deep knowledge of Indian tradition, imparting a good deal of the lore and legend associated with drums along the way. You'll be able to make your drum as authentic as you wish, modeled after any of the Chippewa, Sioux, Cheyenne, Slav, Arapaho, or Blackfoot drums depicted in these pages. And once your drum is finished, Mr. Mason provides a wide variety of authentic decoration ideas to truly capture the flavor and appearance of actual American Indian drums. Scout leaders, camp directors, and school teachers will find this book perfect for making easy and inexpensive percussion instruments for jamborees, shows, etc., and young people will discover that making their own drums is fun as well as rewarding.

Описание: In this readable, well-researched history, a distinguished authority on musical instruments offers a concise survey of the evolution of trumpets, trombones, bugles, cornets, French horns, tubas, and other brass wind instruments. The story begins with such primitive contrivances as bark trumpets, conch shells and perforated animal horns, bronze trumpets used by the ancient Danes and Celts, large Roman horns, and other devices. During the medieval period, a large number of curved instruments or horns of various shapes and sizes developed, including trumpets, looped horns, the sackbut (forerunner of the trombone) and others, while the Renaissance saw the introduction of the slide trumpet. In the nineteenth century, the advent of valved instruments ushered in yet another new era. In this extensively revised and updated edition, Mr. Baines documents the various states of the evolution of brass instruments with immense learning and a wealth of detail. The text is supplemented by over 140 black-and-white illustrations as well as 48 music examples. The result is a scholarly yet accessible account that remains an indispensable resource for any brass player or music historian.
