5.0 out of 5 stars Simple & Easy To Understand, 28 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Practical Theory: Complete, Spiral-Bound Book (Spiral-bound)
This book would be very valuable to anyone learning music theory. It will teach you the basics, from note length and timing, right through to some of the harder aspects of music theory such as transposition. It is ideal for a beginner who requires a grasp on the subject, or even for anyone interested in playing a musical instrument. The book provides excersises through-out, and it has mini 'tests' and the end of each subject chapter. Each chapter is broken down into smaller sections, these sections usually only cover one page and have a useful 'fill in the gaps' section at the bottom of each page. The whole book is easy to complete and the each excersise can be broken down to allow the user to finish the book before a specific deadline if necessary. I would highly recommend this book to and beginner to music theory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to music theory, 29 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Practical Theory: Complete, Spiral-Bound Book (Spiral-bound)
I have tried other ways of learning music theory and not had much success. So returning to absolute basics I tried this course of study. Although I am only a third the way through this course I am pleased and surprised at the ease with which it moves through the subject. It is not a childlike approach but breaks the subject down to small bites of one page per subject. The explanations are very straight forward and to the point. Each lesson has questions where the students practices what has just been learnt. If in doubt look back at the lesson for the answer. Every about four lessons there is a section of review questions on what has been learned so far. Again very straightforward but with answers at the back of the book. I feel that I am now making very good progress and recommend this method to anyone wanting to learn music theory.
