Music Fundamentals is both a textbook and a workbook written for students who want to learn the basics of music. Keeping in mind the student with very little or no prior knowledge of music, musical concepts are reinforced by numerous examples including global music, along with a comprehensive website for students to practice their knowledge, and a CD with audio examples. The music examples range from Stevie Wonder songs to Beethoven symphonies, from rhythmically challenging African songs and syncopated Brazilian choro songs, to humorous Filipino ballads and Schubert lieder.Features:A variety of exercises to help the student transform knowledge into practice.Listen and Sing exercises for ear trainingKeyboard Drills to be played on a real keyboard or piano, or the keyboard insert provided in the inside coverClapping and Counting exercises are included so that students not only have a cerebral understanding, but also a visceral feeling for pulse and rhythmReview Exercises at the end of each module facilitate progress to the next module.Cultural Notes discuss musical genres or place musical examples in a cultural context.Historical Notes place material in an historical context.Vocabulary Notes discuss musical signs or terms.
