Edly’s Music Theory for Practical People Level 2 Download

Music theory need not be dreary! Edly’s Music Theory for Practical People Level 2 is the second in a two-part e-series of the well-loved paperback, picking up where Level 1 leaves off, with a bit of review for good measure. Its clear and friendly writing and wry humor, coupled with fun illustrations throughout, makes the topic that music students often think of as dry and boring, into something approachable, attainable, and yes, even enjoyable. For players of all instruments and singers, it is applicable to all genres of music. With the exception of the most advanced topics, everything is presented so that even those who don’t read music can understand—something that sets it apart from most theory books. Extensively hyperlinked, with workbook exercises also online (free) for printing and completing, an Answers section, and a combined glossary and index.
