The Elements of Music: Melody, Rhythm, and Harmony (Hardcover)
By Dr. Jason Martineau

In combination with novel graphics and symbols, the principles behind melody, rhythm, and harmony come alive, along with those of Western musical notation. From intervals, triads, and the circle of fifths to major-minor keys and modulation, Dr. Martineau presents a splendid primer on music theory for the novice and professional alike.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
