Much like an encyclopedia, this book shares step-by-step musical theory on two-page spreads. I can simply turn to the page(s) I need and teach from there or go systematically through the book to make sure no gaps are left. Since the sections begin with the simple and moves on through more difficult theory, I have yet to make it through an entire section. We just go as far as is appropriate at the time.
Nine sections cover a variety of topics each - pitch; rhythm; intervals, scales and pitch; melody; chords and harmony; form; instruments and voices; styles and genres; reference pages. I have three children all working on different instruments, but theory is theory, so I use this book with all of them.
Note that it isn't a workbook, but more like an encyclopedia of information. However, when my children who come home from instrument lessons with music theory worksheets, this book can help them understand the assignments better.
Oh, I almost forgot, a CD is included with the book that demonstrates various concepts - like beats, meter, note values, timing, etc. This has been a huge bonus!
