Category Description for Essentials of Music Theory:

This program was created to enhance student's understanding of musical language. It is for all age levels, for anyone who wants to learn the essentials of reading and writing music. The Complete Lesson Book is made up of three 6-unit books, for a total of 18 units and 75 lessons. Starting with the staff, notes, and pitches, this series teaches the concepts of note values, time signatures, harmony, rests, dynamics, tempo, sharps, flats, naturals, music terminology, sharp and flat scales, key signatures, intervals, triads, chords, modes, tones, and much, much more. Lessons are usually one page in length, and contain both instruction and exercises. Each unit closes with ear training activities and a review with exercises. You can purchase the Ear Training CDs separately, or packaged with the Lesson Book or with the Teacher Answer Key. The CDs feature tracks that correlate with the ear training sections of the book so students can hear what they are learning about. The Teacher's Answer Key is easy to use, as it contains the exact text of the Lesson Book with answers shaded in gray.

Several supplemental items are available to complement the lesson book. Bingo and Flashcards help you learn and review notes and rhythms. A teacher's activity kit has 30 reproducible practice pages and six tests, with answers in the back. A CD-ROM is also available. This contains lessons which include animation and aural reinforcements, exercises to reinforce learning, ear training listening examples, tests, score and record keeping, and a glossary of definitions and other musical concepts. System requirements: Windows 7, Vista, or XP; Mac OS 10.4 and higher. Maybe you can play a musical instrument, but can you speak the language? - Melissa

My high school musician is dedicated to his instrument, but feels as though he does not have a good understanding of music theory. We are hoping that this book series fills in the gaps for him and increases his understanding of the music he plays.

Excellent curriculum
We have been using this music theory book in our homeschool for about a month. Both my daughter and I are very pleased with the content, thoroughness, completeness, and progression of the lessons. My teenage daughter especially enjoys the ear-training CDs, which I use for a lab in this area. If ever I had the need to purchase a music theory curriculum again, this would be my very first choice.
