Together with the compact disc, Fundamentals of Music, Third Edition, is a package of clear, informal prose, high-quality recorded examples, and varied and abundant drill. The (recorded) ear-training drills and keyboard studies, together with a variety of sight—singing excerpts will provide ample material. The book is reader centered with frequent suggestions for study and learning, self-tests with answers, supplementary drill exercises, and step-by-step procedures. The drill and explanatory musical examples include popular music from big- band standards to rock. Includes music by women composers— this feature separates Fundamentals of Music, 3/e, from most other books of its kind. In addition, frequent references to other world musics show the author's commitment to diversity. The book includes a detachable, fold-out keyboard diagram to aid in scale and interval study. For those interested in learning to play/read music or to simply gain a greater appreciation of it.
