Lambert, Principles of Music 2e
Ideal for students with no prior experience with musical notation and music theory, Principles of Music, Second Edition, presents a sequence of carefully-designed lessons that proceed step by step through music fundamentals. In addition to lessons in pitch notation and tonal materials, this all-in-one text and workbook also covers the basics of rhythm and meter through separate lessons and performance exercises that reinforce rhythm reading. While rooted in a repertory of Western art music, the text also encourages students to explore other works--and other musical traditions--with lists of suggested further listening at the end of each lesson.
