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.



Master major and minor scales, intervals, pitches, and clefs
Understand basic notation, time signals, tempo, dynamics, and navigation
Employ melodies, chords, progressions, and phrases to form music
Compose harmonies and accompanying melodies for voice and instruments

Wherever you want to go musically -- as a writer or performer, or just as someone who wants to enjoy music to its fullest -- this approachable guide gives you everything you need to hear!
