Practice as well
on 11 March 2013
Initially I borrowed this from the library, but I bought it because there are lots of written exercises and I wanted to go through them putting notes in the book. As a novice, the practical excercises really help in understanding pitch, rhythm, harmony and so on.
A CD is included and for some exercises some kind of key board would be useful, or they suggest singing the notes yourself! It's not just dry theory. And it's clearly and concisely written - no distracting and annoying anecdotes like you get in some teaching books!
Don't know how far I'll get as it looks quite complicated towards the end of the book.
