Hundreds of musical components related to melody, harmony, and rhythm are blended together to make music. The study of these elements is called music theory. This book explains basic music theory as it relates to the needs of the average musician. It covers basic music reading with note names and time values, accidentals, ties, and other symbols and terms, as well as the theory behind the most common scales and chords. Quizzes throughout the book reinforce key concepts.
