Thelonious Monk - WikipediaMonk is the second-most-recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington , which is particularly remarkable as Ellington composed more than a thousand pieces, whereas Monk wrote about Monk's compositions and improvisations feature dissonances and angular melodic twists and are consistent with his unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of switched key releases, silences, and hesitations. His style was not universally appreciated; the poet and jazz critic Philip Larkin dismissed him as "the elephant on the keyboard". Monk was renowned for a distinct look which included suits, hats, and sunglasses. He was also noted for an idiosyncratic habit during performances: while other musicians continued playing, Monk stopped, stood up, and danced for a few moments before returning to the piano. Monk is one of five jazz musicians to have been featured on the cover of Time magazine the others being Louis Armstrong , Dave Brubeck , Duke Ellington and Wynton Marsalis. His poorly written birth certificate misspelled his first name as "Thelious"  or "Thelius".
Black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. It is an achromatic color, a color without hue , like white and gray. Since the Middle Ages , black has been the symbolic color of solemnity and authority, and for this reason is still commonly worn by judges and magistrates, including the justices of the U. Supreme Court. Black was one of the first colors used by artists in neolithic cave paintings.
What is your goal for students when assigning a new piece? For me, it is to engage him or her by establishing an understanding on how to practice it before they go home. Part of this is to leave the student with a slightly analyzed score that will, in part, indicate how he should practice during the week. This article will provide ideas for creating an analyzed score with your students, using three pieces from the Masterwork Classics series. Below are short teaching dialogues and ideas to leave a student with, along with a sample marked score for the student. Remember, these are only suggestions and you are invited to amplify them or omit something as needed!
