Theory and Harmony for EveryoneA Workbook of Fundamentals for MusicWritten by L. Dean ByePublished by Mel Bay Publications
This book of basic music fundamentals is designed to be used by itself, or as a supplement to any traditional instrumental or vocal method. It has been written to provide those who are interested in becoming better musicians a basic knowledge and understanding of the elements of music; and may be used for private study or in a classroom situation. To achieve the optimum end result, the student should engage in frequent and continued study, as well as intense additional drill and practice. All of this is aimed at the ultimate goal. That, of course, is to be a better and more knowledgeable performer, composer, or musical consumer.
