Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I love the Focus on Skills sections. I am able to use them in a variety of ways to reinforce what I am teaching. I really like how you and your team are developing this new edition!"

"The homework is great. The materials are presented in a very clear, logical manner. Most other books have "holes" in the presentation of the material. This book is extremely well organized. Far better text than anything available."

"The text is organized well in terms of a steady progression of concept of study. While it uses musical jargon, it also speaks to the students in conversational tone and not above their heads. It covers an appropriate amount of material and does not attempt to be something it is not (it is a first-year fundamentals text)."
