The author of this text has always believed that the richest person in the world is poor without music. As a teacher, Joe Procopio has spent a lifetime successfully enhancing and enriching the lives of all he has taught. Basic Music Theory is an easy to read book about music. It is the first step to take for anyone who is not trained in music but wants to become a musician. With this book you need not be a musician. It teaches you how to read music - from the very beginning. It is also perfect for those whose knowledge of the terms used in music is incomplete. This makes it ideal for the First Year Music Theory student whose text usually fails to give the student a complete understanding of the vocabulary and tools used in music. Now, for the first time, an inexpensive, easy read - easy to understand text is available for everyone to know what chords, scales, keys, notes and intervals are. In addition, Professor Procopio has included his own unique 48 Chord System that allows anyone to learn all their chords in ONE EASY EXERCISE. This simple exercise can be played with one hand on the piano or on any other instrument by anyone as is shown in the book. This exercise alone is worth more than the value of most music textbooks. To be sure, Basic Music Theory is the best, easiest and least expensive book you can have with music. Its sequel, Making Sense With Music (by the same author - also very inexpensive), is a masterpiece for understanding the whole world of music as easy as understanding your own language. It is the only book that actually turns notes into words. Basic Music Theory will eliminate any fear you may have of music and help you become a musician with confidence. In Making Sense With Music you will be able to see, hear and understand all of the world's most beautiful music. Both books unlock the language, mystery and magic of music. Both books promise and pledge to make your life more abundant, more beautiful and more enjoyable.
