Reviews

"The author is not only a music expert-he is also an excellent communicator. . . . He understands that the journey to knowledge involves leading the student to discover, rather than simply using recitation and regurgitation of preset information." --Jennifer Knelman, University of Guelph "The integrated approach is very effective: written exercises within reading assignments and references to repertoire excerpts and pop music are included directly in the text, rather than in an accompanying anthology or another appendix. Addressing various musical aspects (i.e., melody, harmony, rhythm) in each chapter works well, and the ready-made drills and dictation exercises will be appreciated by instructors." --Heather Harty Scott, Douglas College
