Applied Music Fundamentals: Writing, Singing, and Listening provides an engaging and interactive introduction to the fundamentals of music theory. A wealth of skills-based exercises and memorization strategies-both in the text and online-build mastery and fluency through varied repetition and offer students the opportunity to apply musical abilities and concepts. Through familiar examples and by placing the analysis and creation of music in a real-world context, Applied Music Fundamentals moves readers beyond mere rote memorization toward a thorough and more intuitive understanding of the key concepts that music theory students must know.

* "Composition" exercises and "Challenge" examples give students the opportunity to think beyond the foundations introduced in each chapter and apply their acquired musical skills in a creative and personal way
