Music theory need not be dreary! This eBook's clear and friendly writing, coupled with fun illustrations throughout, makes the topic that music students think of as dry and boring, into something approachable, attainable, and enjoyable. For players of all instruments and singers, even those who don't read music. All genres of music.
This is Level 1 of two levels, and covers the natural and chromatic musical alphabets, triad and 7th chord construction, major and minor scales, keys, and key signatures, intervals and inversion, diatonic chords, functions, and inversion, 12 bar blues, the circle of fifths, ear-training, secondary dominants, an introduction to transposition, and cadences. It features a fully-linked “Glossarindex”—a combination glossary and index.
