Substatially revised, Fundamentals of Music,Fifth Edition, presents a complete introduction to music fundamentals and basic musicianship. The author employs a fresh, student-centered style to introduce and explain traditional topics such as notation, meter, scales, triads, and chords. The text informs, guides, and encourages students with basic theoretical information that is balanced with helpful suggestions for study, copious exercise material, introductory aural skills training, and self-tests with answers. For instructors who include basic musicianship skills in the fundamentals course, the (recorded) ear-training drills and keyboard studies, together with a variety of sight-singing excerpts will provide ample material.
