Music makes it possible to express yourself, your emotions and to share them with other people. This is the art that people were using to entertain themselves for thousands of years.
Music theory is not the aim but the tool. In this book, I’m explaining to beginners and dummies how to use this tool.
In the second theory book, I explain the rhythm and the pitch – the two main things if you want to understand, read, and play music. This book is universal and can be used by any student that wants to play any musical instrument. Violin, guitar, piano, singing — all of these and other instruments use the same notation and basic rules. After this book, you will be able to feel the rhythm of nearly any song that you hear. You will be able to read notes in bass clef and even more — you will be ready to start playing almost any musical instrument. Reading sheet music is essential, but practical skills are vital for any musician as well.
At the end of the book, you will find the list of recommended songs to listen to. Remember — it is impossible to play music if you don’t listen to it. That’s why listening exercises are vital.
If you are a beginner or always wanted to start understanding the music but didn’t know where to start – your moment is here!
