      This bibliography page lists Music Related "... For Dummies" books   (Wikipedia)   in my collection "{A}".   This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of every "For Dummies" book ever published about a musical topic. It is just a list of every book I own "{A}", purchased in my attempt to find books that include individual musician and/or composer biographies. Three of the books below include biographies (Blues, Classical and Jazz).
