Publisher Comments:

In The Language of Music, Tom Brooks demystifies and explains the basic building blocks of music in a simple, clear, straightforward way - essential knowledge that every worship musician needs to perfect his craft. The book offers a practical, real-world approach to all the fundamental concepts; music theory and harmony, chord construction, scales, key signatures, chord relationships, transposition, modulation, chart reading, and basic arranging, along with tips on how to practice more efficiently and rehearse more effectively, and much more. The focus is on contemporary praise and worship; music that is inspiring the church in the 21st century.

I'm frustrated with the "available June 2013" business! Does that mean the first or the thirtieth??? I've been waiting for this title to be in print again for a very long time. I guess I'll just have to wait a bit longer. *Sigh :-D In my opinion it is one of the best music theory books out there--and certainly worth the wait--as good or better than those of the great Robert Pace!!! (And I ought to know, I'm a Pace-trained pianist and have been tickling the ivories and writing my own music since age 5--34 years! :-))
