From the Publisher:

In this book you will discover: Transcribing techniques. How to maximize your creativity and productivity. How to develop your craft by consolidating techniques. How to read music with your ears. How you can write music without using an instrument. How to write music spontaneously, as your ear guides your hand. How to communicate accurately through music notation. Why you don't need "perfect pitch." Tools to develop your music perception. 140 exercises, many music examples—models for a lifetime of study. Resources for composing, orchestrating, film scoring. Working in the music business. Where to find supplies, organizations, information, inspiration. A definitive guide and reference for composers, orchestrators, arrangers and performers.

From the Author:

This book is designed to help you develop and refine your perception and your ability to communicate with music—to know what you are hearing and to express your thoughts through music notation or performance.

In this second edition, we have added new material including Creativity and Productivity, Working in the Music Business, and outlined a plan for developing and consolidating your techniques into an integrated craft. There are updated resources for your investigation into all areas of music, as well as expansion and clarification of material in response to readers questions and comments.

In these pages, you will find guidance, inspiration and information to help you clarify the abstract aspects of music, make the intangible tangible, and perhaps spark your interest to further explore some of the vast realms of music. Along the way, we will explode a few myths that have continued to confuse and discourage students of music. We will encourage you to develop the musician within to the fullest, so you may achieve mastery in all areas of music that you choose.

The studies in this book require a fundamental knowledge of music. You should have the ability to read notes on a staff and be familiar with clefs, keys and meters. This book does not attempt to duplicate the many existing sources of basic music skills. Rather, it will enhance and expand the knowledge and techniques that you have developed thus far. You’ll gain the confidence to allow your musical decisions to be guided by your ear, experience and intuition, rather than someone else’s rules.

Igor Stravinsky said, "I had only my ear to help me; I heard and I wrote what I heard. I am the vessel through which Le Sacre passed." Many musicians, artists, actors have expressed the same thought with different words: "I am merely a channel/conduit/vessel/instrument; my art flows through me."

This work is concerned with that moment when music flows through you.
