Introductory Musicianship: A Workbook (with CD-ROM and Keyboard Booklet)

Introductory Musicianship: A Workbook (with CD-ROM and Keyboard Booklet) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text/workbook emphasizes the fundamental skills of reading and writing music by providing ample drill exercises that challenge without overwhelming the student. A wealth of examples, both in the text and on the accompanying CD-ROM, along with worksheet exercises reinforce each major concept covered in the book. This gives instructors the flexibility to assign as much or as little material as the student needs to master those concepts central to good musicianship.

Book News Annotation:

For beginning students, Lynn (Los Angeles Valley College) provides a textbook/workbook that emphasizes reading and writing music. Units cover notation, meter, scales, modes, intervals, triads, seventh chords, melodic writing and transposition, and harmonization and accompaniment.

This edition has new worksheets, more coverage of harmonization, is reorganized, and integrates guitar chords on the pullout keyboard. A CD-ROM, which contains exercises and examples from the text, is included. There is no bibliography.
