Summary

For one-semester, freshman-level courses in Basic Musicianship, Music Fundamentals, or Music Foundations; and for graduate courses in theory review. This classic, self-paced, auto-instructional introduction to music fundamentals allows students to work independently through a programmed format, allowing instructors to concentrate on the more creative aspects of their course. From the wealth of clearly laid-out lessons and exercises, students receive continual feedback and reinforcement as they work through the sequence at their own pace. The result is a more productive and enjoyable teaching and learning experience for all, both in and out of the classroom.
