Book of the Week - The Times
'brilliantly comprehensive...one children will dip in and out of for years.' Huffington Post

Welcome to the School of Music, a place bursting with talent, creative energy and special encounters. It is a place of nuts-and-bolts learning - getting the basics for beginners right - as much as a place where musical imagination runs riot and where everyone has triple-fun with the sound of music. Making it... Listening to it... Writing it. Meet The Boss! He's called Sergio Trunk. Some people call him The Maestro, and he, along with his team of talented musicians, will lead you through 40 lessons that help you to learn about classical music, the theory behind music, and the fun you can have making it.

“A joyful, passionate and humorous journey into the wonderful world of music”

What a treat! Here’s a book about music, written by authors who know music and musicians inside out. But it’s far better than merely ‘well-informed’. Meurig and Rachel Bowen possess that sort of deep-rooted knowledge... More
