An Annotated Bibliography and Reference List of Musical Fiction
 Brown, Kellie D.
2005 0-7734-6158-2 360 pages
Since the earliest civilizations, a connection has existed between music and the literary arts. From the Old Testament and ancient Greek poets to the great operatic masterpieces of the nineteenth century, music and words have forged an inseparable bond. This relationship is not only seen in musical genres but in a prolific output of novels for adults and children that contain musical themes, characters, and/or settings.

This book is the result of many years of research into fiction that has this musical connection. Focusing on novels mainly from the twentieth century, this volume contains an extensive annotated list featuring works for adult, young adult and juvenile audiences and also represents a wide range of musical genre from classical to jazz to rap. Following the annotations, this book provides a comprehensive listing of all titles sorted by reading level and by musical genres to assist librarians, educators, and readers in finding the precise book for a given need or interest.

An Autobiographical Bibliography of Percussion Music
 Larrick, Geary
2006 0-7734-5970-7 212 pages
Methodology in this interdisciplinary study incorporated viewing more than two hundred periodicals in University Library in the Learning Resource Center at the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, during the first three months of 2005. Thus, references taken involve that time frame or in the recent past.

The author started at the beginning of the alphabet; that is, periodicals with titles starting with the letter “A,” and went to the letter “J,” whose publications for the most part started with the title word “Journal.” This encompassed well over two hundred bibliographic entries in the book and research notes, adding annotations that often include author memoirs.

The result is an interdisciplinary view of percussion music. Many authors, editors and articles are cited, in a number of different fields, i.e. sociology, anthropology, health, physical and social sciences, natural resources, and the humanities. The author of this book has made an effort not to replicate the original works, but simply to use them as a stepping stone to further discussion. Therefore, both the bibliography and the associated references are important to the subject.

The reader is invited to attend this tour of the periodical collection, and to enjoy its diversity, variety, threads of similarity, personal and professional memoirs that are related to the subject at hand, and to discover all the wonders that are available to the modern reader. Citations include a multicultural list of names from a multiplicity of nationalities and ancestral sources, coming together, for the most part, in the academy of post-secondary and higher education.

Appendices include: A Brief Look at the Compositional Relationship Between Leon Lester and Sigmund Hering; Brief Biographies of Sigmund Hering's Principal Viennese Instructors; A Complete List of Sources Used to Create the List 'Twentieth Century Topics of Trumpet Pedagogy'; and Definitions of Some Terms Used in that list.

Bibliography, History, Pedagogy and Philosophy in Music and Percussion
 Larrick, Geary
1999 0-7734-8165-6 190 pages
Section I contains more than a hundred brief essays headed with bibliographic entries, covering aspects of contemporary percussion music. Section II contains more than twenty essays on a broad selection of subjects having to do with music ranging from the symphony to the xylophone. Section III contains several essays of musical scholarship covering analysis, biography, education, history, pedagogy and performance. The biographical sketches are of a professional nature. "The book traverses an expansive terrain of composers: some of the well known masters who happened to write for various percussion instruments, and others, writing as percussion performers themselves, who have made contributions to the solo literature. . . . there is an entire section devoted to women in the field. Geary Larrick deals at length with the literature on percussion music, and reviews, for instance, catalogues of instruments and the literature written for them. Monographs and methods, both historical and pedagogical, fall within the scope of his discussion, and he has reviewed many solo anthologies (some of which are for students), and collections of orchestral excerpts. . . . Even more diversity appears in his commentary on percussion instruments. Naturally the instruments of the orchestral percussion section are appropriate here, but the Afro-Cuban and Afro-Brazilian instruments appear alongside oriental and biblical instruments. . . . concise and within the reach of every insider. It is even accessible to outsiders, where the world of percussion has remained, until now, incomprehensible. This book shows how vast and variegated that world is." – Richard Pinnell, Chair, Department of Musick University of Wisconsin- LaCrosse
