This classic, self-paced, auto-instructional introduction to music fundamentals allows students to work independently through a programmed format, allowing instructors to concentrate on the more creative aspects of their course. Basic Materials of music: time and sound; notation of pitch; time classification, note and rest values; time signatures; intervals; basic scales; major scales; minor scales; key signatures; triads.

From the wealth of clearly laid-out lessons and exercises, students receive continual feedback and reinforcement as they work through the sequence at their own pace. The result is a more productive and enjoyable teaching and learning experience for all, both in and out of the classroom.
