5.0 out of 5 stars very well designed, December 28, 2010

This review is from: Contemporary Theory And Harmony - Berle (Paperback)
The book has sat on my shelf for a while...i finally decided to just go through it. Its great...its little over 100 pages so how daunting can it really be?? On the other hand to my satisfaction there is very little wasted in those 100 pages. Meaning its just terse enough...i found it just perfect.

Working through the exercises i was actually happy that the solutions werent sitting there. It forced me to go back and reread some things or make sure i understood the material. They werent very difficult, its easy to find the solution you are looking for for any question in the example material albeit probably in a different key. But the nice thing about music theory is that once you understand it in one key the rest is just transpositional work which the exercises seem to be there to encourage you to do.

Its the strangest thing, i take this book around with me during the day and read it when i get a chance and do the (non instrumental)exercises and then when i go home i find i sound much better! :)

looking for a good follow up book, so far iv been disappointed. The other books iv seen have not been nearly terse enough and too short. The great thing about this book is that he doesnt assume just because you may be unfamiliar with music theory that you are a completely inept thinker.
