Editorial Reviews

New edition of a text that teaches the basic skills needed to read and write music. The text units contain brief explanations followed by numerous musical examples and worksheets that cover notation, meter, scales and modes, intervals, triads, seventh chords, melodic writing and transposition, harmonization and accompaniment. Other chapters present rhythmic and melodic sight-reading exercises. An excellent introduction for the non-music major, or as a beginning theory course for high school and above.
