Description:

In this groundbreaking book, Daniel Kazez offers a new solution to the age-old problem of negotiating what students see as a bewildering array of individual note lengths with little relation to one another. Professor Kazez identifies the short rhythm patterns that appear over and over in Western music and introduces them one at a time. By focusing on these patterns, or "rhythm cells," students make the transition from reading notes to reading music quickly and easily.
