THE LANGUAGE OF MUSIC

THEORY MADE PRACTICAL
"The LANGUAGE of MUSIC" is a practical theory training book for contemporary musicians. Simply put, it is ‘Everything a Modern Musician needs to know about Music Theory’ spelled out in 21st century language; the terms used on stage and in the studio every day.

Author Tom Brooks says it best: "The book is basically four years of college theory classes, dis- tilled down into exactly the elements you need to know - and nothing that you don’t." Published by Hal Leonard Music Publishing, "The LANGUAGE of MUSIC" is a valuable, practical resource; proven effective in seminars and workshops around the globe. It is the theory book that you always wanted - easy-to-read and simple to understand.

Starting from the Basic Building Blocks of music, the book covers everything from pitch / rhythm / the staff / time signatures to scales, chord building, harmonic progressions, chord symbols and charts, transposition, modulation, chord substitution, the modes, and beyond. In addition there are valuable lessons on how to practice more effectively, leading rehearsals, and practical live performance tips.
