If your students have never played a musical instrument . . . if musical terms such as pitch and chord are unfamiliar to them . . . or if they simply need a refresher on the fundamentals of music . . . this book will help students unleash their musical talent. With David Damschroder's expert guidance, they'll learn the fundamental concepts of music theory not as a spectator, but as an active participant. With the many activities in this book--and the accompanying CD-ROM enclosed free with every new copy of this text--they'll soon be reading and making music from written notation. In Part One, the author explains intervals, scales, and triads. In Part Two, he expands the discussion to include chords and chord progressions. To give you greater flexibility in planning your course, this Second Edition now includes optional Enhancement sections that offer such additional pitch topics as chromaticism, transposition, and harmonizing melodies. Depending on the length and organization of the course, you may assign these optional sections, or your students may opt to complete them on their own.
