Acting: The Active Process is not a text about theory only, but a hands-on, classroom-friendly, doable process. It forces actors to ask the right questions: What do I want? What's in my way? What tactic do I select to get what I want? Where does the scene start/end and how did it get there. All of these principles are centered in the author's major advice: "Acting is about one character trying to get another character to do something."
Organized into six chapters, Acting: The Active Process:
If acting is not your key interest, this book will provide lessons that help nurture how you express yourself in public. Acting is a form of self-expression as well as a ways and means for accepting who you are as a person.

An Introduction to Art Music takes readers through the world of art music–AKA “classical” music–from basic terminology to periods, styles and composers. Written by a music educator rather than a musicologist, it presents information in a way that is accessible to the novice learner but should also be interesting to the more experienced music listener. Music is presented within a larger context: every section of the chronology begins with an introduction to what is happening in the world, to major artists of the time, and to literary and artistic movements.
