Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For those who want to learn the inner workings of music without, as author Dave Stewart notes, getting bogged down in a lot of fearsome technicalities, this is an enlightening exploration of the theory and practice of music. Picking up where The Musician's Guide to Reading & Writing Music leaves off, Stewart uses the same amusing style, clear examples, and practical advice to encourage readers not just to read music, but to write some of their own. The book sheds light on tonality, chord sequences, scales and modes, tempo, rhythm, improvisation and composition, chords and chord voicings, MIDI, and more. 128 pages, 6 1/8 inch. x 9 1/4 inch.

Synopsis:

Writing in a wry but insightful style, Stewart provides simple examples that shed light on the terminology, written language, and "celestial" mechanics behind music. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

The musicians guide to composition, improvisiation and the mechanics of music.
