Basic Music Theory: How to Read, Write, and Understand Written Music

(Barré) #1

“Fun and engaging. A real winner!” —Terrie Lyons, PhD, P.C.

“Jonathan Harnum has taken an overly complicated subject matter and made
it learnable for anyone. And I do mean anyone! Harnum de-cryptifies all that
is involved with music theory for the non-musician. But this book is not just
for the non-musician. I have been a student of music for more than 13 years
and a teacher for 3 and I found myself finding new and interesting (and
humorous) facts about music theory. This book can teach anyone music
theory and keep a smile on their face the entire time.”
—Robin Gibelhausen, music teacher, Illinois

“Basic Music Theory by Jonathan Harnum is an excellent book for people of
all levels. I have played various instruments over 24 years and because of
Harnum's matter of fact, conversational tone, this book has lent more to my
understanding of basic music theory than all my private instructors
combined.” —Solstice 1221, Anon. reader in LA
