It is a great self educational manual for motivated and untrained music lover. Chapters unfold on rhythm (beat, tempo, meter), musical notation, scales and keys, intervals and harmony, and putting music theory into practice. The use of shaded sidebars presents exciting supplemental information, such as composer bio-profiles, (Richard Wagner, Arnold Schoenberg, more) and musical concepts or types of music (such as blues). A pair of comic caricatures of Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Elvis and others peps up dialogue and narrative and helps lock down reader attention. An Epilogue, Glossary, and Further Reading resource list complete this succinct, elegant mini- music theory manual for beginners, compacting a large amount of useful information into a clear, user friendly reader format." --"Library Bookwatch" October 2015 "Music Theory for Beginners presents in spare, witty, condensed chapters the basics of music theory for the untutored in five chapters and 115 pages.
