I took music theory in college 10 years ago, this book content is beyond what I had learned. The material provided is very detailed and expansive, I look forward refreshing my memory while broadening my musical knowledge. One thing I find disappointing is the thin paperback cover. A textbook over $100.00 should have featured a hard cover, some people, like myself, will keep it overtime.
This is a book for the advanced and well trained amateur,students or teachers that need practical solutions to problems that occur when you work with music on a more or less daily basis. The area of theory / listening / analysis so on approves so many big and small questions that the most of us either "aim at" or "keep a hand on" , to use some metaphors. In my personal opinion there is nothing like having a solid wall of musical experience before expecting particular results from studying - but the authors are the same as the ones that made another "easier" edition,by which I happened to buy a year ago. Practical Beginning Theory: A Fundamentals Worktext

Honestly; I have never experienced to get as much out of sitting by myself ,singing,listening,tapping and playing(piano and guitar ),but to a certain degree these books have taken some of the rooftop away - I have became a much better musician compared to where I cam from and would never have achieved the same progression in learning skills along with the assignments that followed the basic theory volume,which by the way come in only book,"two-in-one".
The "Music in theory and practice " are put together by two parts ;part A " the fundamentals of music " and part B " The structural elements of music".
Part A works with the same as before ,notation,scales ,tonality,key, modes, interval,transposition and chords.
Part B is slightly more advanced and consists of all together 12 different chapters ,not important to mention that it all comes with listening examples that are described by full page notes and assignments to work with on your own or together with other, more than 400 pages of

Workbook to accompany Music in Theory and Practice, Volume 1 with Finale Discount Sticker

learning and about two hundred pages of working lessons - real meat on the bone for every penny it is worth,in other words!
Really; if things are getting stuck in your student apartment, I`d rather buy this book instead of a used coach... you will never regret it if you are sure to combine it with some methodical back up for rehearsal on the own instrument. As a supplement I must confess I have never seen anything more detailed ,complexed , worked through and utterly recomendable!!BUY NOW!!!!
Excellent reference and learning tool for any musician regardless of skill level.
Great read and fast delivery!!
My class worked with Dr. Benward on this book--we were his test class. Although this may not be the best book for everyone, it is a very comprehensive text that requires the instructor's input. As Benward told us, if we were to teach theory we must work towards the student's understanding of the concepts and not allow the text to work magic. Hence, we must illustrate and re-inforce the principles with our examples and experiences.

I hope I am lucid enough to help.

Good book.

Needed this book for school. Arrived on time. Exactly as expected
this book was a requirement for theory 1 class. its an essay book to understand however it also comes with a work book that is sold separately.
This is a great basic theory book perfect for those who want to know more about music theory, and also for those pursuing a career in music. Covers a lot of basic classical theory so you can get started in understanding the fundamentals of music. Great reference book for musicians, as well. Whether you play guitar, sing, or even if you're just an avid music listener, this book will help you understand a little bit more what you're listening to or playing.
