Publisher's 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.

    "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.

    "Amazing"

    For someone who is an intermediary guitar player , I have some familiarity with reading music , so this book will help me reframe , and remember stuff I forgot
    Is amazing how the author was able to make a subject that is completely visual , and transcribe to audio
    I really appreciate , thanks for the author , and audible making this available in audio format ,

    "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!

    "Amazed at how much I learned!"

    I only listened to this audio book while driving and I’m amazed at how much I learned. I am just restarting to learn the guitar and for the first time in my many tries I think I’ll make some decent progress this time in large part to getting a better foundation.

    I know I’ll be going the website soon for more info the author has prepared.
