Music what makes it

ROB KAPILOW Author of All You Have to Do Is Listen

What Makes It Great?

Music Theory For Dummies

Short Masterpieces of Great Composers

Second Edition with Audio CD

ROB KAPILOW Using an innovative approach, Rob Kapilow, in his refereshing trademark style, presents the history of music from Bach and Vivaldi to Debussy by focusing on short pieces by the major composers. The book operates on two levels, using each short piece of music as a way of grasping the essence of each composer’s genius, while also focusing on the way each piece transformed the musical language of its time, making something normally forbidding and difficult—the history of music—utterly manageable and easy to grasp.

MICHAEL PILHOFER Music Theory For Dummies, Second Edition presents a friendly, unintimidating overview of the material covered in a typical college-level course and makes music theory easy to understand. It includes updated information on current teaching techniques, the newest music examples and genres; understanding tones; mastering major and minor scales; using intervals; recognizing pitches and clefs; understanding rhythms; note values and basic notation; time signals; tempo; dynamics; navigation—and much more.
