Berklee Music Theory Book 1 Reviews
I'm a bass player who's self taught and has been playing for many years. I want to learn music theory and to read music and hoped this would help. So far, it's just been ok. I have to go through the audio exercises several times to understand what the exercise actually is. The text in the book is quite well written, but the accompanying online audio isn't easy to follow. It's almost as if someone just felt like that had to put something online to say "we have something online" to sell the book, but didn't really put in the effort to make it really good. I know it's affiliated with Berklee, but it feels like they just held something back. I guess since we only pay a few dollars for the book we don't get the full benefit of the $1100 course at Berklee. I'll continue with the book, but they could have made the book and audio a lot better together. 3 stars. Meh. Let's hope the 3rd version is better. Adding in some video would have made this MUCH better. Frankly, I expected better from something with Berklee's name on it.
Since I knew nothing about audio studio design or listening area design these were all new to me. They do a nice job of treating the subject with both history, math, and physics. Those are the things that make up acoustics and what you have to learn. So they get five stars. These books all overlap but each is a refresher and builds on the next. So none of them are a waist. You could do with just one or two but I don't honestly know which ones I would pick.
Information is great! However the book says the course comes with online audio samples, the link and code provided in book are useless, because link provides error code. Contacted publisher but no response.
This is an excellent book on scales, notation, ear training, intervals, scale degrees, and the very fundamentals of music theory. I can't say enough about this book and will refer back to it often. I took Paul Schmeling's music theory 101 class with Berklee and this book was used for the first part of the course. My knowledge of theory is night and day compared to what I thought I knew. Can't recommend this one enough.
This starts a little basic if you have been doing anything associated with music, but does start at the beginning and go from there. I found it helpful to fill in gaps (such as, in notation, do you know you don't tie notes over the center of the measure?).
Made things go a bit smoother with my class.
If you know nothing about music theory, this is a good place to start. I bought this to aid my students in learning about music theory and how to write it out, count it, etc.
For the wifes music. perfect
