Nandi, Jean, Jenkins, Leonie, Smith, Thomas G.


"Jean Nandi's delightful, informative, & user-friendly 'how-to' book, Starting on the Harpsichord, fills a twenty-year need for an effective tutor designed for the individual whose first musical experience is on a harpsichord. We are fortunate that this first book of its genre is so engaging, clear, & pedagogically imaginative. The book includes charming black & white drawings by Thomas Gordon Smith, an architect, & Mark Farmer, both experienced harpsichord players. The writing style is good-natured, lucid, & conversational throughout. Hand position & rhythmic interpretation all proceed in order of importance, including little examples written by Leonie Jenkins, an orthopedist & harpsichordist who, like the artists listed above, studied with Nandi, a twenty-five-year veteran of harpsichord teaching."--Laurette Goldberg, Notes, Music Library Association Quarterly Journal, December, 1990. "I invite you to read the book Starting on the Harpsichord by Jean Nandi...There has never been such a study that outlines in such good detail how to play the harpsichord...A thorough teaching manual. ...Jean's enthusiasm & her love of the harpsichord has inspired me & others to continue playing & enjoying the harpsichord"...Matthew Redsell, Continuo Magazine, 1989-1990.Nandi, Jean is the author of 'Starting on the Harpsichord A First Book for the Beginner' with ISBN 9780962202308 and ISBN 0962202304.
