Comprehensive, succinct and cute!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Elements of Music: Melody, Rhythm and Harmony (Wooden Books Gift Book) (Paperback)
Wow - this book is amazing value. All the formulaic stuff that musicians and composers might want to know, whacked together into a simple and convenient pocket sized volume. It's incredibly well written and flows very logically.
In the same way that mathematicians and scientists might refer to charts and tables, or cooks go visit a recipe book to check how many eggs to use, everything is here for musicians. It also is on 100% recycled paper and looks great. Lots of helpful simple drawings throughout. A couple of minor typesetting errors appear to have crept past editing (e.g. like a word repeated), but they don't alter meanings.
