Adrian Valia channels his music-making talent, his profound knowledge of theory and his experience with teaching music into the most comprehensive handbook for total beginners and those who want to deepen their shallow grasp on necessary concepts. With clear and enlightening illustrations and graphics, as well as short custom-made instructional videos accessible by QR code, this book streamlines all the notions that seem unapproachable to novices, as well as to those who have found studying music theory in a traditional classroom setting inscrutable.
Readers will delve into the fun world of Rhythms, with accessible exercises and lessons on time signatures, polyrhythms and more; elements of Melody like intervals, scales and modes are demystified, as is the elusive Circle of Fifths. Readers will also get introduced to Harmony and learn, among other compelling things, how to build absolutely any chord. What is more, Adrian includes an encyclopedic glossary of music terms, as well as recommended resources so readers can keep learning well after they’ve completed the book’s main chapters.
Whether they want to compose, play or simply better understand their craft as vocalists, this is the only book readers will ever need to build a solid, enduring foundation of knowledge. With The Fundamentals of Music Theory Made Simple, learning has never been more effortless or rewarding.
