Description - Music Theory for Dummies: 4th Edition by Michael Pilhofer
Tune in to how music really works
Whether you're a student, a performer, or simply a fan, this book makes music theory easy, providing you with a friendly guide to the concepts, artistry, and technical mastery that underlie the production of great music. You'll quickly become fluent in the fundamentals of knocking out beats, reading scores, and anticipating where a piece should go, giving you a deeper perspective on the works of others - and bringing an extra dimension to your own.
Tracking to a typical college-level course, Music Theory For Dummies breaks difficult concepts down to manageable chunks and takes into account every aspect of musical production and appreciation - from the fundamentals of notes and scales to the complexities of expression and instrument tone color. It also examines the latest teaching techniques - all the more important as the study of music, now shown to provide cognitive and learning benefits for both children and adults, becomes more prevalent at all levels.
