For courses in Music Fundamentals.
Immersed in musical literature, and written by a leader in the field of music theory, this text covers all of the basic topics: music notation; rhythm; scales; intervals; triads; and basic harmonic progressions. It engages students in the process of making music—emphasizing, at every stage, that music is to be heard and made—not merely seen and learned as theoretical concepts in the abstract.
