  • August 29, 2012 Complete Book of Modulations

    After reviewing the book, I can say that it is what it says it is! A wonderful way to learn how to modulate if you read music! If you don't read and have a good ear it takes some work but it is worth it! Thanks

  • February 27, 2012 Complete Book of Modulations for the Pianist

    I am very pleased with this book. When playing preludes for church I often need to transition from one key to another. I am not an accomplished pianist so this book of modulations is just exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate too the good service and timely delivery...

    from sheetmusicplus. Thank you.

    I use this book every week - as I use between 8-10 modulations by the time I've played through all the songs in our Sunday service. It's well organized and very easy to find the key changes that I need. Thanks so much!

  • March 19, 2009 Perfect for churches

    Like many churches, our musicians have little formal training. Some play by ear, others by sight. For those who need music, I was looking for a book that would allow me to modulate between songs in different keys for songs in our worship services. This was the PERFECT solution. The...

    simplicity of modulating between keys now provides a great flow in our worship service.

    Difficulty Level:
  • September 10, 2007 Good examples, no explanations

    I will actually give a 3.5. I'm an intermediate to late advanced player. This book covers all examples for modulations (going from one given Key to a different one). The book is divided in four sections: a) from every major key to every major key b) every major key...

    to every minor key c) every minor to every minor d) Every minor to every Major. Each section has 12 examples for each of the 12 keys. However, the book lacks any kind of explanation for the student to understand how to approach a modulation or how they work. Just examples. No text at all. Although a good previous knowledge of harmony and function of chords can provide the reader with the tools for figuring it out, this should be notice when buying it from the net. Another thing that rested points to this book is the fact that many examples are repetitions of other ones just in a different Key, this is no good in consideration of the lack of text. Good teaching tool, I wouldn't know any other to recommend instead.
