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. Basic Materials of music: time and sound; notation of pitch; time classification, note and rest values; time signatures; intervals; basic scales; major scales; minor scales; key signatures; triads.
