So that's how it works!,
This review is from: How Music Works: A listener's guide to harmony, keys, broken chords, perfect pitch and the secrets of a good tune (Paperback)
Witty writing made this book accessible for me, someone who knows nothing about music, apart from the fact that I enjoy so much of it. John Powell's explanations are enlightening, for example, he explains and illustrates the difference between noise and sound. Useful for me as a Speech and Drama teacher: I just wish my music teachers at school had taught me the facts behind the sounds.
