Description: "Edly's Music Theory for Practical People" is for anyone, teen to adult, who wants to learn what's going on inside music. This includes players and singers of any level desiring a deeper appreciation of music--rock 'n' rollers wanting broader musical horizons, jazzers needing more knowledge of chords and scales, theory students needing supplementary help, or classically trained folks wanting to branch into popular styles or to read from fake books. The 200 page soft-cover book begins by introducing notes, and moves quickly into scales, chords, keys, key signatures and intervals. Also included are modes, ear-training, figuring out music by ear, chord substitution, transposition, improvisation, and song forms. Each topic is accompanied by an explanation of what it is, how it's used, and why it is helpful. Written to be read and understood by singers and players of all instruments (even those who don't read music), "Edly's Music Theory for Practical People" successfully shows that learning theory is a very, very, practical thing to do. The book's informal, friendly, and often whimsical tone sets it apart from most textbooks, making music theory inviting at last. Lively and plentiful illustrations by artist Peter Reynolds complete the effect.
