    Extremely well done! For a musical novice like me, who has not learned an instrument or studied music before, this book was a great help. The author does a solid job at making clear both the overall structure of music, western music and that of other cultures, and of explaining a lot of details in clear terms. I learned more even than I had hoped to learn. I'm looking forward to his book on composition for computer musicians, and believe I have a lot better chance of putting things together that Extremely well done!

    It's a very well written and organised book on music theory for beginners AND advanced musicians. It might be overwhelming at first, but a couple of passes through this book should get you to a clear understanding of what music theory is all about.

    It was ok, a bit long. Other than that it really helped me understand the concept of music and the scales and stuff :/

    Very good and clear introduction into the world of music theory! It will give you a great understanding of notes, intervals between them, how we use them form scales and chords. You go through all the popular scales in western music: major, minor, pentatonic & blues... and learn to form chord progressions with them. The book gives you a solid foundation to continue your musical journey. Very good and clear introduction into the world of music theory!

    Very useful book with basic music theory and more. As I do have knowledge in music theory, I just wanted to revise some English terminology for things and did wish it was a bit more constructed and to the point. But that's just me.

    Excellent book that works as a not very deep introduction into the topic it covers. It could use more exercises though. It's nice that the audio is available online.

    4 Stars If you're a computer musician and want to learn more about the basic structures of music, this could be worth a read. If your not a computer musician, there's probably a better book out there for music theory.

    Great book! Perfect for a drummer/DJ turned into a Muscial Producer. Very clear and direct to the point. (May be a little to basic for more advanced readers)
