Mastering the Fundamentals of Music presents a hands-on approach to learning the basics of the subject. The book is intended for classes of students with little or no background in the pre-theory level of study. Important features of the book include division of the text into chapters on each of the basic topics for flexible use; a curriculum that reinforces each concept through singing, reading and notating music, and listening to musical examples; an active role for students throughout the text; expressive terms and symbols applied from the beginning level; keyboard diagrams and exercises to enhance understanding; student assignments in composition and conducting; and musical examples chosen from a global perspective.
