A hands-on approach to mastering the basics in class and online.The Musician’s Guide to Fundamentals teaches the basics of music―listening, writing, and performing―using real music, from Bach to the Beatles, Broadway to the Black-Eyed Peas. A unique hands-on approach invites students to listen to music from day one as they learn to interpret musical notation and, eventually, to use it to compose songs of their own. New online resources―including an ebook, online notation from Noteflight, and quizzes―offer opportunities to listen, read, and turn in assignments online.
