Music Is My Life has a lot of ways to help you cope with life through music – cry it out, get creative with it, shout about it. Of the artists mentioned in the book, I had seen about 10 of them live, which was pretty cool. There are song examples and facts about them and they are all split by your moods so you can choose your playlist based on how you are feeling. There are some really cool illustrations in this book and all genres and eras of music seem to be included so at least someone you’re interested in should be in here!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Do you remember the first time you discovered an artist you really loved? Have you listened to them over and over again at different points throughout your life?
This book harnesses that feeling, by collecting together 80 of music’s finest artists to guide young people through the good, bad and sad times. Whatever the feeling, these artists have been there and sung about it. Organised by mood, young ones can dip into the library to discover new artists from decades past to present day.
Fall in love with Mariah Carey, shout about it with Nirvana, love yourself with Lizzo, or cry it out with Adele. With 80 artists, bands, and composers from all genres (including classical) there’s something for every family member to love and recommend to the next generation.
Each entry contains biographical information on each artist, lists must-hear songs, and has accessible musical analysis from author and journalist Myles Tanzer. Every artist is captured in full-colour, rocking art by Ali Mac. With information at the front on how to soundtrack your mood, and information at the back on how to listen to and make your own music.
A pitch-perfect first introduction to music for tweens.
