Music theory (beginners, all ages),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Music Theory in Practice, Grade 1 (Music Theory in Practice (ABRSM)) (Sheet music)
This is a good first book as an introduction to music theory. Even if you are learning an instrument 'just for fun', it is good to understand something about the written music before you. I'm not quite sure at what age it is aimed at. I had four years of 'classical' tuition some 50 years ago, mostly forgotten, but I have had a little difficulty with grade 1 knowledge. Some things seem to be a little obscure (to me) but this book, together with the Theory of Music Exams, with the Model Answers, are an excellent start towards an understanding of music.
