    Toy of the Year; Toy of the Century; Greatest Toy of All Time... there aren’t many titles that haven’t been bestowed on LEGO toys, and it’s not hard to see why. From its inception in the early 1930s right up until today the LEGO Group’s history is as colourful as the toys it makes. Few other playthings share the LEGO brand’s creative spirit, educative benefits, resilience, quality and universal appeal. The LEGO name is now synonymous with play time, but it wasn’t always so. This history charts the birth of the LEGO Group from the workshop of a Danish carpenter and its steady growth as a small, family-run toy manufacturer to its current position as a market-leading, award-winning brand. The company’s growing catalogue of products including the earliest wooden toys, plastic bricks, play themes and other building systems such as DUPLO, Technic and MINDSTORMS are chronicled in detail, alongside the manufacturing process, LEGOLAND parks, licensed toys and computer games. Learn all about how LEGO pulled itself out of an economic crisis and embraced technology to make building blocks relevant to 21st-Century children and discover the vibrant fan community of kids and adults whose conventions, websites and artwork keep the LEGO spirit alive. As nostalgic as it is contemporary Building a History will have you reminiscing about old Classic Space sets, rummaging through the attic for forgotten minifigure friends and playing with whatever LEGO bricks you can get your hands on (even if it means sharing with your kids).

    Book Description 
    Do you wish your students would practice smarter not harder? Are you tired of nagging your students about the same things over and over? 
    Do you want your students to make faster progress in their piano studies?  
    Right now, all over the world, piano students are wasting precious practice time. And piano teachers are straining valuable vocal chords telling them to practice more. It’s time to reexamine this setup, and cure the underlying piano practice ailments.  
    The Piano Practice Physician’s Handbook takes a fresh look at how piano teachers teach practice skills. These 32 piano student ailments and their cures open up new ways of thinking about piano practice problems. With this straight-forward and practical guide piano teachers can get their students practicing more effectively, making faster progress, and having more fun!  
    What Piano Teachers Are Saying 
    "A must-read for every piano teacher, The Piano Practice Physician’s Handbook is full of practical advice you can start using with your students today! Follow the prescriptions and your studio will be full of musicians with healthy practice habits."  
    Bridey Gibson, Piano teacher & blogger at pianosaurusrex.nz  
     
    "The Piano Practice Physician's handbook is the book that I would have written about practice had I ever got around to putting all my ideas into one place! Nicola has created a resource that uses a clever analogy between medicine and music so your studio is the "practice clinic" and practice problems include those that are "chronic" right through to "vision impairment" and even "ear infections"! The links are both creative and instructive and will give teachers everywhere a new way to diagnose and 'treat' practice issues in their students.  
    So many times as teachers, we share the same tips with different students and I've often thought how great it would be if there was a reference of all the "ailments" that students present with and a recommended list of "treatments". Given how little time we actually get to spend with our students each week, it's vital that we teach them to practice correctly. This book will be of great value to both new and experienced teachers and even adult students in making sure they stay on top of their practice, get the most out of every minute at the keyboard and ensure that problems hopefully don't become chronic.  
    I recommend this resource to piano teachers and students everywhere."
