MAKIN SENSE WITH MUSIC is a tried and tested program (Book and/or CD) that is the result of successfully teaching the understanding and appreciation of the beauty and wonder of music to people of all ages and all walks of life. In it Professor Procopio has unlocked the language of music and made it as understandable as one's own language.


As a lifetime composer, musician and music teacher Joe Procopio has re-mastered and released his guide to understanding the language of music that he developed for over 30 years and taught as an educator to thousands of successful students worldwide. This method is now available in the iTunes music store, Amazon, CD Baby, etc. as the  CD or Book entitled MAKING SENSE WITH MUSIC. Now, for the first time, the average person as well as the trained musician can not only listen but also understand all kinds of music easily.


With MAKING SENSE WITH MUSIC, you need not be a musician or even be able to read music in order to master the language of music. This unique method teaches the listener to become fluent in the language of music by turning musical ideas into words and sentences that anyone can make sense of.


With MAKING SENSE WITH MUSIC, Procopio demonstrates how small groups of notes are used by composers to convey meaning in music. Each of six devices is clearly explained with musical examples and completed works of music. For example, one composition depicts an argument between a woman and a man using one saxophone for the woman's voice and another saxophone for the man's.


MAKING SENSE WITH MUSIC is now available in a completely digital format and delivery, allowing a new generation of music lovers around the world to download new meaning into their music.
