    Le doy 5 estrellas porque es completísimo. Su lectura es muy valiosa, pero tiene más valor como libro de consulta, pues no se puede asimilar tanta información.

    Please note I am writing this review as someone who has never done music theory before and with this being the first book I have read on the subject. So the rating of 5 stars (rated 23/11/2019), may change when I have other books to compare it with. As the title of the book suggests this is a step by step guide to the basics of music theory. Or the first part anyway with part two going into more I can only assume more complex detail and note groupings.

Or the first part anyway with part two going into more I can only assume more complex detail and note groupings. The book itself was easy to understand, using visual depictions of both the notes found on sheet music and piano keys to show what is being discussed. Time values, Tempo, Major and Minor scales all the basics are here. Along with explanations about Cadences and even mood. That being said you will need to get part two if you want to get a grade above 5 for and even 5 itself from what I can tell. When doing music theory tests such as that which can be taken with ABRSM. Who yes have their stamp in the top corner of the book.

    Coming as a complete newbie to the music theory fray, I didn't know what to expect from this book. I was pleasantly surprised. To aid my learning of a new instrument and appreciation of musical contours, I must say this book has done a splendid job to help me to read sheet music and its 'arcane' notation. Though there are some concepts like the circle of fifths I felt at first were explanatorily lax or that I was quite thick in the head, I came to appreciate music theory serves the expression an Coming as a complete newbie to the music theory fray, I didn't know what to expect from this book. I was pleasantly surprised. To aid my learning of a new instrument and appreciation of musical contours, I must say this book has done a splendid job to help me to read sheet music and its 'arcane' notation. Though there are some concepts like the circle of fifths I felt at first were explanatorily lax or that I was quite thick in the head, I came to appreciate music theory serves the expression and communication not vice versa. Music theory could I guess be studied but music theory must be for the music. And I ceased my questioning. No need for a foray in acoustics and the like, at least not yet. Taylor explains the foundations well, I feel, and builds gradually to help the reader appreciate music more. Thankful for a clear and sensible expositor of his trade.

    A really great overview of the basics of music theory. A lot of this information can be found only but it is either too advanced or misses out on things. This wee book on the otherhand lays it all out. It does require the reader to have a decent competency with sheet music in order to understand the music examples and the explanations themselves could be a little difficult to grasp without at least doing a little online reading beforehand.

    This book (Part 1), has helped me a lot with my music theory studies when I was a kid (I'm still using it now too). This book is for those who are taking the grade 1-5 of the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, London, UK) theory exams. Even though it is for lower grades, I still use it to refresh my memory about something that I forgot. Especially in understanding the cadences, articulation etc etc. I really highly recommend this book (including the Part 2, which is for higher This book (Part 1), has helped me a lot with my music theory studies when I was a kid (I'm still using it now too).

May it be a student studying music in a University/Music Conservatory or to teachers out there. A must have for those who are serious into music and how music really function.

    Very informative, however I would suggest following with the workbooks and having a tutor on stand by because it can get very complex and quite hard on the old thinking cap!
