Synopsis: Many books are written about performing, composing and analysing music, but very few on how to research it and write about it. Music in Words does just that. Trevor Herbert addresses all the issues that anyone, from students to professional musicians, may be confronted with when undertaking a writing task, whether it be a programme note or a thesis. This clearly thought-out book is a guide and a reference manual in one: the first part is a 'how-to' section, including an introduction to the strategic use of the Internet; the second, a compendium of information for quick reference. Its straightforward approach will make it a much-needed support for those who have little or no experience of writing about music, while being equally useful as a reference tool for more experienced writers.

About the Author:
Trevor Herbert is Professor of Music at the Open University of the UK. Before entering academic life he played trombone with London's principal orchestras and period instrument groups. He has published widely in academic books, journals, reference works and more popular media. He has broadcast extensively on BBC radio and television.
