    Many people grimace at the Sound of Music theory. It can conjure up bad memories of grade School music classes, Rattle the brains of College students, and make self-taught musicians feel self-defeated. Music Theory may seem tedious and unnecessary, especially since not many people can read music. Luckily , Music Theory for Dummies shows you the fun and easy way to understanding the concepts needed to compose, deconstruct, and comprehend music.
    This helpful guide will give you a great grasp of: *Note value and counting notes *Treble and bass clefs *Time signatures and measures *Naturalizing the Rhythm *Tempo and dynamic *Tone, color, and harmonics *Half steps and whole steps *Harmonic and melodic intervals *Key signatures and circles of fifths *Scales, chords, and their progressions *Elements of form *Music theory s fascinating History This friendly guide not only explores these concepts, it provides examples of music to compliment them so you can hear how they sound firsthand. With a bonus CD that demonstrates these ideas with Musical excerpts on Guitar and piano, this hands-on resource will prove to you that music theory is as enjoyable as it is useful. Don t get discouraged by the seemingly complicated written structure. With Music Theory for Dummies , understanding music has never been easier!
