Antonio Lauro is one of the most famous composers to come from Venezuela. He has written many works for orchestra, piano, choir, harpsichord, and guitar. He is most well-known for his guitar works, this being his main instrument. In the early 1980s he gave concerts in London and Paris at the request of John Williams and Paco Pena. The pieces represented in these guitar works are for players at a beginner-intermediate level, and in standard notation only. Continuing the 19th Century tradition of other composers of Venezuelan waltzes, Lauro named many of his pieces after people or places. "El Marabino" is the name given to someone who comes from the city of Maracaibo. "Angostura" is the original Spanish name of the city where Lauro was born. "Carora" is the colonial city near Lauro's birthplace. The Venezuelan waltz differs from the European waltz in its rhythm which may alternate between 3/4 and 6/8 time and in its more syncopated style. The melodies are highly sentimental and romantic.

Following the release of The Early Years..., which Vintage Guitar magazine called “carefully crafted ... lavishly illustrated,” this full-color book continues the amazing journey of an American icon's recording career and the coveted instruments that bear his name. Beginning with the collectible late '60s models, The Modern Les Paul Legacy moves on to the '70s and '80s special-themed instruments – showing all popular artist models, like Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, and Slash, in living color. And the “holy grail” '59 Sunburst and the jaw-dropping Custom Shop creations of the '90s receive their due as achievements that have never, to this day, been surpassed. The book also covers Les Paul's resurgence – the comeback Grammy Award-winning album with Chet Atkins, the start of a weekly gig in a New York City jazz club, and the reconnection with the Gibson family. Since Les Paul's death in August 2009, this will be the first book that covers his entire life, including his last performances at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the memorials in New York, and the burial in his hometown in Wisconsin.

Polish composer Moritz Moszkowski (1854-1925) wrote brilliant piano music similar to the early-Romantic style of Chopin, Mendelssohn and Schumann. Written for advancing pianists, each etude is a study in drama, mood and expression as well as finger technique. Hinson's edition contains a biographical sketch of the composer, a discussion of his style, and a helpful performance analysis of each etude.

George Gershwin's three most famous preludes demonstrate his genius for piano writing, and portray a variety of styles. Prelude I exudes energetic syncopation, Prelude II is a lyric blues with an ostinato-like accompaniment, and Prelude III closes this set brilliantly with rugged rhythms and exciting syncopations. All three preludes were selected for the Federation Festivals 2011-2013.
