This classic, self-paced, auto-instructional introduction to music fundamentals allows users to work independently through a programmed format. From the wealth of clearly laid-out lessons and exercises, learners receive continual feedback and reinforcement as they work through the sequence at their own pace. Chapter topics cover the basic materials of music: time and sound, the notation of pitch, time classification, note and rest values, time signatures, intervals, the basic scales, the major scale, minor scales, key signatures, and triads. For private music studio teachers, and anyone involved in the teaching—and learning— of the basic fundamentals of music.
