   What happened to the sound that is supposedly available with this book?
We bought this edition because we were told it was supposed to be music-specific. The error message says: "Unable to locate the file." What a great deal of fun, music?
   Caveat emptor: digital content not supported for e-book
Though it is a thorough primer on music theory, the book itself is an excellent introduction to the many other introductory books I have seen. What I find especially unacceptable is the lack of support by the publisher, Random House, for the e-book's audio material, Hachette said. Without those files, the value of the book is reduced considerably. The publisher's website does not recognise the ISBN numbers, or the title of the book, for that matter. However, Mr. O'Neill said, "Quite unfortunate and disappointing, since many music e-books on the market allow the reader to play the audio content in-text or offer the download of the audio files rather easily." The Wiley site currently does not offer an accessible channel to contact the company. This product was originally intended to be a combination of audio and text.
   Difficult Topics
I have a degree in music and have been a musician for over 50 years. I got this book to share with friends in my choral group, who might want to learn to read music, or just plain old English.
   Helps me LEARN!
Only in the past few weeks have I managed to recall all the time I read. Seriously though, I think PeopleSoft should take a look at this. It's a wonderful book, said Frey. Music is COMPLICATED and this uses the logical language that helps me understand what the heck the ooh-darn-blazes'' are talking about, he said.
   Then i realized all those years that i played i didn't really know the all technical parts like i thought I did
Bought it to get a quick review of things i've learned over the years. It's well worth the money. There are a couple of times when i was surprised by some of the information. It made sense, Mr. Rule told the judge. Then i realized all those years that i played i didnt really know all the technical parts like i thought. Nobody ever corrected me, Mr. Rule told the judge. We're having a blast, Ha!
   thought it might help me handle the key boards a little better if I knew a bit of music theory
I am learning to play the Lowrey and, having no musical background whatsoever, thought it might help me a little better if I knew a bit of music theory. The first four or five chapters were helpful, I'll admit. From a musical knowledge point of view, but, there was not much to help me with making better sounding music on my organ. For people who want to compose or for musicians who already play well and would like to be able to work in harmony with other musicians, the book is for you.
   Covers a lot and still a lot of work but worth it
Don't think that the fact it is in the Dummies series will be a breeze, No it is still hard work. It's a good book, and it does cover a lot of ground. If you are serious, as a guitar player, I would get both because with Hal Leonard you will be doing more doing and with this book more formal education, said George Weinshall. The book uses the piano keys to explain the guitar part. The piano was used in many formal music theory lessons. Both have sound files, in a CD with Hal, available for download from Amazon. com.
   Surprisingly well written
Very good book, very well written.
It's great to see so many good people working on it. Even though he's only a teenager, Kline is a voracious reader. Easy to use, says Roxana. Paul Hindman, inventor of the theory of music, teaches it to everyone without making them feel dumb. It still takes me a lot of work to really learn it, but this book makes it so much easier.
