Editorial Reviews

Review

"A friend of mine who is going to Berklee College of Music recommended your book. He used it before his audition and got right into an ensemble. I'm hoping it does the same for me, I'm planning on going next year." -- A. Johnson, St. Petersburg, FL<br /><br />"Thanks Bruce, these books are kicking my "---"!. I'm going to work on them awhile before I give them to my students." --D.L., New York, NY

From the Publisher

Practicing is more productive and far more fun when you have the help of a tireless friend; in this case your computer. These books are the first of their kind, using the internet as a teaching tool. All the written exercises provided have audio counterparts which can be downloaded from the Internet. Mr Arnold has taught at some of the most prestigious universities in the world, and these books are the result of seventeen years of experience. He has observed his student's most common musical problems, elicited their input, and the results are the Bruce Arnold Series of Music Workbooks, addressing both harmonic and rhythmic issues. These books are geared to the seriously dedicated musician, whether beginning or professional, and will provide a lifetime's worth of study and inspiration.

We are very excited about Mr. Arnold's innovative instruction series. We believe that this series of books will help more students and professional musicians to perfect their technique and reading skills through the use of an interactive "practice partner." We know of no other books to compare with them; they are truly a teaching method for the New Millennium!

This book gives the serious student a real workout in eighth note rhythms. Personally I haven't seen anything at this level, I congradulate Muse-eek Publishing Company for putting out a book which is obviously geared to the serious student and not the lowest common denominator like most music publishers. Keep up the excellent work

Just wanted to write in and tell everyone how much this book has help me. I've always had a problem reading and playing rhythms. Mr. Arnold's book has really helped. I went to the muse-eek website and got the audio examples and playing those with the exercises has really helped. I think I'll check out the other volumes soon.

This book is pretty good, but I don't know that I'll ever get through the whole thing. It only covers eighth notes and bigger, making it extrememly thorough, but also very boring to play. I got it for piano, but I don't know how helpful it really is because it only drills you on a single measure instead of two at a time, which is what a pianist would play. All in all, though, it is good for memorizing the sound of all the different ways to play eighth notes. As a precursor to this book, or in place of this book, I would recommend 'Sight-Read any Rhythm Instantly' by Mark Phillips, which goes through the whole process of how to properly read rhythm and also exposes the student to different time signatures.
