    I hesitate to give this any rating simply because I am not far enough in my music lessons to fully understand theory when it’s written out. I’m currently using a YouTube playlist to learn and some of this info is included but on a much easier level. I wanted to read the entirety anyway just to have a primer Incase I hear it again. Once I’ve made it further into my study I’ll pick this back up and try again.

    This book has two significant mistakes. First, on page 46 it says the interval from C to E flat is a diminished third. The author should have said it was a minor third. On page 50, the author claims a descending minor third for Beethoven's 5th Symphony are the first three notes. Not true. That's a major third. This book has two significant mistakes.

    I've been learning music for about 11 years and I am currently 21, so I have a reasonable understanding of musical theory.

    Theorists look back and try to fit all the music into a set of rules. But this is not always in your best interest. It is worth nothing that a certain sequence of chords happens over and over again, but trying to figure out why will drive you crazy. In the end, you'll understand that there are sounds associated with feelings, moods, and other things that cannot be quantified with theory. Remember: music first, theory second.

    I really like music, but I struggle with music theory. Largely because there's soooo much math to it. My positive review of this is mostly based on the fact that this is the third time I have tried to read a music theory book and the first time I've been able to even get through one. The fact that it made some sense and I know a little more is just icing on the cake at this point. Also jazz guitarists are not given nearly enough credit.

    En temel muzik terimlerini gunluk dilde, “layman” ya da tembele anlatir sekilde anlatmis. Cogunlukla bildigim seylerin turkce karsiliklarini gormus, ve armoni modlari ve jazz armonilerini kabaca tanimis oldum. Hic muzik teorisi bilmeyen insanlara okumalarini, ama sadece bunu okuyarak cok bir sey anlayamayacaklarini soylemek isterim.

    Boring When I tried to learn music theory from this book alone, I couldn't keep it up. Taking a course helped me understand the concepts, but I will keep this book as reference. 3-Stars because the book itself is likely doing its best given that it's trying to explain music via ink on paper Boring When I tried to learn music theory from this book alone, I couldn't keep it up.

    This is good book for beginners and those that want to refresh their memories. I recommend reading this in bits and pieces as if you reading this for a class because then you can sit with the material and fully grasp it.

    Organized well and well written....but it lost me pretty quickly. I'll keep it on the shelf for another attempt at a later time... Organized well and well written....but it lost me pretty quickly. I'll keep it on the shelf for another attempt at a later time...

    Gave me a good introduction into music theory. Gave me a lot of ideas around how to structure my compositions. Easy enough.

    Definitely not a primer, one needs a background in music theory to make this more palatable. Over my head but there are many useful nuggets of information available to the reader, done in a less technical way.

    This book gives a good understanding of music Theory to the reader. It is not overly complicated and uses simple terms and phrases. This book has added so much to my understanding of music. I can apply these concepts to the music that I play. Overall, I loved this book.
