Editorial Reviews

Review

"I read in your preface that this text tried to be very precise and to the point with minimal prose. I do think this is a terrific point to make. It gives you what you need and that's it. . . . It's straight and to the point. . . . I REALLY like the I-II-III-IV, A-B-C, 1-2-3, format. It really seems more organized and easier to read. It breaks everything up in short nuggets of information and therefore doesn't seem overwhelming to take in." -Sharon Nauman

"Written text is kept to a minimum. Instead, the emphasis is on graphics, i.e., the notes. In some texts, the explanations of chords, intervals, scales, voice leading, etc. can be more confusing that it need be. There are copious exercises. Theory at this level is best learned "hands on." The exercises are present so that students need not be accomplished pianists to play through them as they complete them." -Gayle Murchison

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Purchased used for music theory class - most of the same information as the extended edition for over $100 less. Just used a friend's copy of the extended edition and marked a few page numbers with a small post-it to make it easier to follow along in class.

Format: Hardcover
HEAVILY OVERPRICED! ANNNND except for the "Enhanced" portion, the pages are just within 3-5 pages off from the regular 7th edition, which is the greenish book. A bit of a rip off for students who are already struggling to make ends meet for school!
