Volume 5, the last in The Young Musician’s Series set, was written to introduce students to the basic concepts of expression and ornamentation in music.

It begins with a brief orientation to the subject of expression in music.  Next, there is an examination of dynamics, the subject of relative volume and its implementation in a piece of music.  Volume 5 then launches into a lengthy presentation and description of each of the many ornamental figures available and found in music throughout history.  A detailed study of musical styles round out the material of this volume.

As with all volumes in this series, each lesson in Volume 5 includes a Review of prior lesson data, a statement of current Lesson Goals, intermittent and final Lesson Reviews, a post-lesson Quiz and independent Projects based on the current lesson’s data. There are numerous illustrations and music examples, which are both appealing and a learning aid.
