Summary

What do all those lines and squiggles and dots mean? Basic Music Theory takes you through the sometimes confusing world of written music with a clear, concise style that is at times funny and always friendly. The book is written by an experienced music teacher using methods refined over more than 30 years in schools and in his private teaching studio. Lessons are fun, well-paced, and enjoyable. Whether you're a beginner of any age, whether you're an experienced player who wants to bone up on your theory, or whether you teach music and need a fun way to do it, you'll find this book valuable and will refer to it again and again.

As Perfect as Music Theory Boom Can Get

To learn music, one must play, experiment, be inquisitive and explore. This is a book, so it was hard to imagine how useful it could be and how much could be learned.

The great thing about this book, is that it encourages you to put it down. This is not a book one picks up and reads systematically from cover to cover in order to take in all the golden nuggets of information. This book, is more like having a teacher waiting, prompting and guiding you, as you play, comprehend & internalise concepts that are first felt and then understood (or sometimes vice versa).

All in all, this book does exactly what it’s supposed to do… fills in the gaps of one’s musical knowledge while dropping pearls of wisdom.

Every player will be at their own level, so more experienced musicians will skip certain parts. However, there is something for everyone. A book that should be part of every musicians collection, as part of their passion-for-music journey as well as a reference.

Knowledge is worth more than silver and gold!

A very good portable and study anywhere book

I am always skeptical about audible books for practical, hands on skills review. This book is different. It is a very effective way to review key concepts when holding and reading a book is just not feasible - driving, running, doing errands. With the support of the website resources, one can actually study and apply the material when in front of an instrument. Well done.

Music Man

I greatly enjoyed this book. Music Theory has always been my weak point and I have been teaching music for years. I decided that I was going to commit to learning more about music theory and saw this book on audible. At first I thought there was no way to teach music theory through an audio book, but I was pleasantly surprised. This book not only helped me but will help my students for years to come.

Great book, wonderful performance, endepth knowledge, and a fantastic resource for years to come. Thank you!
