  • September 08, 2014 Learned so much but how well?

    I am thrilled with this 2nd book in the series, but even a competent theory student needs a key to check later. I never check until I finish an exercise but I do deserve to be able to buy a teacher's copy to insure I'm internalizing good practices...

    and not just reinforcing mistakes. Other theory books do include a teacher's book. Really not happy about that. However: this is an excellent book series for me so far. Sometimes there are missing pieces of information that would be necessary to completely understanding how to use tetrachords to build 2 ascending octaves, or those sorts of things, but I figured them out. Techniques for memorizing the order of sharps or flats (just rote memorization or how to make it into something memorable) can help. I learned them to a degree but was hoping to have a sample and perhaps even improved explanation without having to memorize the circle of 5ths. Circle of 5ths is wonderful but not too handy when writing out a quick key signature.

    This has been around for decades, but it's still a great resource for teaching music theory... Purchased for an upper elementary horn player, but appropriate for any instrument.

  • March 13, 2008 Highly Recomended Self Teaching

    You can learn at your own speed and repeat anything you need to. If you need help, you can get a teacher to grade the tests. I learned things that were not mentioned by my teacher. You can get a deeper understanding of your music and appreciate it better

  • November 12, 2007 Nice and Organized

    I would say this book would be for an older student. It does not waste time with funny cartoons and silly games. The lessons are well explained and they are followed by student assignments, reviews and tests. I bought the whole series to use in my piano instruction studio and...

    am very pleased with whole thing.

  • October 19, 2007 The BEST music theory books available!

    The Master Theory series is one of the best I've seen anywhere. I used these when I was in school, and now I bought them for my kids. I truly believe this will help any child (or beginner) to advance their music studies at a fast pace. The easy...

    layout encourages the student to go further!
