It covers a lot of ground including explanations of scales and chords, theory of resolution among other notable musical ideas. Please click helpful if this review was. Thank you. Brilliant book.
It was a great book to help me understand what I was hearing which certainly helps me to deepen my appreciation and enjoyment of music. Highly recommend. Love the way this book is written. Except for the British terms for the notes like hemisemidemiquaver it is easily understood by all. I gift this book to all my music students! Best basic music textbook ever. Otto Karolyi has written a thorough and interesting overview of the field of traditional Western music.
A novice might find it difficult to grasp the contents completely without a teacher's assistance, but any serious student of music will find it a great introduction to the subject. It is a good read for anyone interested in Western music. I find it very helpful as a review when helping college students prepare for certification tests in music education or for the GRE specialty test in music. It covers a broad range of issues at a deep enough level to make it a perfect review, or introductory, resource.
It would also be an excellent study guide for anyone taking college level placement or exemption tests in music theory. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
