John Riley In 1947 John J. Riley at age 17 founded with a capitol of $250.00 a one-man piano business selling and restoring used pianos that lasted for 58 years. His story is of the piano industry. The people he met and who frequented his shop. They are interesting and poignant characters. Mr. Riley is among a rare and vanishing breed of people who loves their lives work. In the beginning of the book he quotes the Chinese philosopher Confucius "Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life." Mr. Riley did just that. His story is a rare insight into a small American piano industry. That has seen better days that is now in its twilight years. Mr. Riley spins his story in a real down to earth narrative reminiscing to a kinder and more gentle time of life.
John Riley As the twentieth century approached, a new art form was developed, one that would go on to dominate the next hundred years. Though cinema began in silence, it quickly acquired sound and attracted musicians and composers. The new medium demanded a new approach, both aesthetically and technologically, but these problems were overcome remarkably quickly, allowing film composition to develop into a sophisticated branch of music-drama. This e-text outlines the history of film music, introduces some of the major characters, and shows how their music works in the context of film. Includes 2½ hours of music by Steiner, Korngold, Herrmann, Newman, Copland, Williams, Barry, Elfman, Walton, Shostakovich, Morricone, Auric and others. Audio samples are contained in the text: just tap to listen while you read.

John Riley Designed for children to locate words they don't know how to spell. Words are listed alphabetically with the correct spellings adjacent to the phonetic ones. This would be particularly useful in writing activities where the conscientious pupil is bound by his or her spelling ability. They often find many words difficult to locate when using an ordinary dictionary if they don't know how to spell them. I offer phonetic alternatives such as: fawtaw, foatoa, fautau, fowtow, foto = photo. Based on a junior spelling dictionary of 6000 header words, it is my intention that this book will help break down barriers to learning and turn poor spellers into more confident learners. Some words have up to ten alternative spellings provided based on phonetic knowledge and word recognition.
