  • 2012-08-06 00:00:00.0 Good but could be better

    Like one other reviewer, we found some typos, such as diminished fifths or augmented fourths (tritones) being called fifths and fourths along with other examples of (perfect) fifths and fourths. Also, it would help to have more explanations about inversions and circle of fifths/key signatures, but maybe those are...

    considered pre-requisites. It wouldn't take more than a page or two of background so a student could brush up or catch up to the level needed to fully absorb the material.
