FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC AND MUSICIANSHIP, 3rd Edition is intended for a one-semester course in the basic elements of music, including rhythm, meter, intervals, scales, triads, chords, and chord progressions. In Part One, the author explains intervals, scales, and triads. In Part Two, he expands the discussion to include chords and chord progressions. The many activities in this book, along with the accompanying CD-ROM enclosed free with every new copy of this text, will help your students to soon be reading and making music from written notation. With David Damschroder's expert guidance, they'll learn the fundamental concepts of music theory not as a spectator, but as an active participant.
