Summoning the Phoenix
Poems and Prose About Chinese Musical InstrumentsBook - 2013
Every musician knows that learning to play an instrument has its challenges and its rewards. The 12 children in this book are just like any other musicians practicing their instruments and preparing for a concert. But what sets these music lovers apart is that they all play traditional Chinese musical instruments in a Chinese orchestra. Including both flights of fancy and practical considerations; lively poems capture each child's musical experience with a different Chinese instrument, while sidebars provide more information about each one.
