5.0 out of 5 stars Fundamental, 14 Jun. 2004
I have worked with this book for several years, and this is an excellent book to learn music from; with a few days or weeks or months study from this book, anyone can become a competent composer of listenable music.
With a few years study a person can have Bach's power to improvise music which "sounds as if it had been composed prior". Following the system out to its conclusion, a musician who really wants to have ultimate understanding of music at his fingertips cannot go wrong.
I have worked with the system that Fux presents, in addition to having learned music theory from other places; and Fux's system works and really can lead to mastery of counterpoint.
(I only wish a single-volume edition existed.)
