  • "Who Knew Danza Could Teach?"

    Overall

    Story

    Being a public school teacher myself, I probably enjoyed this book more than many people may. I only wish I had the resources that Mr. Danza could call on. It would be heavenly to be able to conceive an idea and actually be able to pull it off financially. But even though he had those resources, he was still a first year teacher, facing the challenges that we all face, dealing with the discipline problems we all deal with, wondering how on earth he could impact a kid's life for the better, as we all do, grading papers nights and weekends, taking them with us to family gatherings, parties, or even the movies. But with it all, it is still the most rewarding of professions. Having a student come back and tell you, "You were my favorite teacher" makes it all worth it. I think this is something that Tony Danza learned.

    Long before he starred on some of television’s most beloved and long-running series such as Taxi and Who’s the Boss? and went on to distinguish himself in a variety of film and stage roles, Tony Danza was a walking contradiction: an indifferent student who dreamed of being a teacher. Inspiring a classroom of students was an aspiration he put aside for decades until one day it seemed that the most meaningful thing he could do was give his dream a shot. What followed was a year spent teaching 10th-grade English at Northeast High - Philadelphia’s largest high school with 3,600 students....

    Frank Muller was one of the most versatile narrators of all time. I am convinced he could read the phone book and make it interesting enough that I would have been compelled to listen. What a shame that his life was cut short, but how grateful we should all be that he left such a legacy of narrated books. RIP, Frank. We miss you.

    Story

    This book is so entertaining! It is funny and clever and very enlightening. The narrator has just the right style, the right mix of humor and seriousness to make it funny and informative. I enjoyed almost all of it. It is written for non-musicians in an effort to help them understand what music is all about. The author does a great job of hitting so many aspects of music, but for me, a professional musician, it was a little elementary. With that said, I did learn a few things that I can use in my classroom, and that made it all worth it. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. I can recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the workings and meanings of music.

    I must add that I am glad the editors did not have the author read his own book. He interjects on several occasions with musical examples that have been discussed by the narrator. He is very hard to understand. I liked his interjections and loved his use of his guitar playing examples, but the narrator, Walter Dixon, brings the book to life.

  • Great American Music: Broadway Musicals

    "The Best of My 23 Audible Purchases So Far."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    If you could sum up Great American Music: Broadway Musicals in three words, what would they be?

    Joy! Joy! Joy!


    What other book might you compare Great American Music: Broadway Musicals to and why?

    I did love the collected Stories Of William Faulkner, which is longer, but this is more fun. This was my first Great Course, but it won't be my last.


    What about Professor Bill Messenger’s performance did you like?

    He is so exuberant, so talented, and so full of interesting tidbits about the composers who wrote the great American Music that I was devastated when I realized that I had heard it all so many times that I know what comes next. I just wish he would do one now on British Theatre. I couldn't wait to tell friends what fun the course is, and to give a copy to a close friend who loves music.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at the stories of the ego of Al Jolson, and wanted to cry at the loneliness of Irving Berlin. It's fun now to go to youtube and see Al Jolson and Banjo Eyes, Eddie Cantor, sing the songs that made them famous, and now I know more of their backgrounds. His discussions of the great musicals made me want to get them from Netflix and see them again. If I were younger, I would want to began writing music. Professor Bill Messenger is so talented, it is fun to hear him play selections and sing them. In addition he has other experts play and sing selections. I may want to also get his course on Jazz. My only criticism is that I wish the course was twice as long.


    Any additional comments?

    You don't have to know music or anything about musical Broadway to enjoy this course. You will learn a lot. Who knows? If you are young, you may change your career path to become an Andrew Lloyd Weber, or Rogers or Hart. I believe that the impact of these musicians will outlast the memory of Hitler.

  • "More than just a lesson on Musical ..."

    11 of 11 helpful votes

    This fabulous course gives an excellent history of the American musical with the focus placed firmly where it should be... on the music. Professor Messenger's voice is relaxing and knowledge is impressive. He paints the picture of history with both facts and narrative but also gives the audience a taste of the music he is describing through his on piano renditions, recordings from the period, and reconstructed recordings where no original recording exists. As a theatre artist and musical theatre professional, I found this course to be both edifying and enjoyable, which are the two things that any great piece of theatre should be. For this course is more then just a lesson on musical theatre it is a piece of theatre itself.

For most people who've grown up with and shared America's musical heritage, great songs open the floodgates to memories and feelings.

    Even from the perspective of time, it is nearly impossible to grasp the full contribution made to music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in his brief and glorious life. He composed his first symphony at the age of 8 and reached full artistic maturity by the time he was only 20. And when he died at the age of 35, he left a legacy of more than 600 works of brilliance - symphonies, chamber music, operas, and more - most composed during an incredibly productive 20-year period.

There is no better way for you to understand the full impact of that description than to not only listen to all nine of his magnificent symphonies, but to do so with a full understanding of what this great composer was saying and the circumstances that drove him up to and beyond what had once been considered the limits of musical expression.

    Almost from the moment it was first set to paper, the music of Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) - technically superb, rich in quality, and widely imitated - has exemplified the Classical style, creating not only the Classical-era symphony but setting the standard, through his own 68 string quartets, against which that form has ever after been judged. And yet Haydn, despite the influence left by more than 1000 works, seems to no longer get his due, Now, in a series of eight vivid lectures, you can learn to understand and appreciate the music of one of the most original and influential composers of all time.

    The concerto offers a kind of unique excitement no other instrumental music can match. Where a symphony enthralls us with its thematic variations and development, a concerto gives us human drama-the exhilaration of a soloist or group of soloists ringing forth against the mass of the orchestra.In 24 musically rich lectures, Professor Greenberg provides a guided tour of the concerto, from its conception as a child of Renaissance ideals, through its maturation in the Classical age, its metamorphosis in the Romantic era, and its radical transformation in the 20th century and beyond.

    When Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died in 1791 at the age of just 35, he nonetheless left behind the defining composition in every available musical genre of his time: symphony, chamber music, masses, and above all - opera. Opera was the prestige genre of the era, and the thought of it, Mozart wrote, made him, "beside myself at once." It was a form he loved dearly, depending on it heavily for personal, professional, artistic, and financial reasons of the greatest weight.
