Elements of Music covers the traditional fundamental topics in tonal music theory: pitch notation in bass and treble clefs; rhythm and meter; major and minor scales; intervals; triads and seventh chords; and simple harmonic progressions. bull; bull;Musical literature. Elements of Music includes an anthology of core works in diverse tonal styles (both in score and recorded on CD), and these are the source of all of the musical examples and many of the written exercises. Students learn the concepts through the musical works, and the musical works through the concepts. bull;Interactivity. Elements of Music comes with an interactive CD that contains all of the written exercises. Students can thus hear the music they write as they write it. bull;Flexibility. Elements of Music, with its transparent organization and its extensive, imaginative, interactive exercises, is designed as a set of flexible resources for the teacher rather than a prescribed curricular sequence that must be followed in lockstep. bull;In-class Activities. Each lesson is accompanied by suggested in-class activities, including singing, dictation, and keyboard exercises designed to supplement and reinforce the theory lessons. The goal of these activities, and of the book as a whole, is to bring beginning students into close contact with music. At every stage, this book emphasizes that music is to be heard and made, not merely seen and contemplated.
