Music Theory Primer, 99 cents for Kindle

I'm not much into self promotion, but it does seem rather silly of me to have this forum available and not take advantage, so...

SQUARE ONE - A Western Music Theory Primer

A short introduction to the vocabulary and concepts of music theory.
If you've wanted to learn about music theory but didn't know where to begin or even how to ask the right questions, this will start you off. We'll start at Square One.


A short primer, in simple language.
About 15 pages or so if printed.
99 cents, and DRM-free.

Please give it a look, and I hope you get something out of it!

Thanks!

Thanks - just purchased.

I like music theory explained well - so I'll let you know how I go with this.

Very cool! Should be a great help to the musical beginner, is there going to be more advanced books coming? I'm at that point.

I'm also interested how far you were intending to take this concept.

Thanks guys!

There's probably not a 'part 2' of this particular topic in my future.
There are plenty of good ADVANCED music theory books out there.
This primer came out because I ran into many folks who were stymied by most of the books out there, and often felt lost in conversations on Internet music forums.
The books either assumed too much knowledge, or glossed over the fundamentals too quickly and it went over their heads.
In the forums, they lacked the vocabulary to ask what they really wanted to know or to understand the answers people gave.
Sometimes, these people were experienced and talented folk musicians who simply never before had a need or desire to use words to talk about the music.

I wrote this to try to fill the gap.

If I write any more stuff, it will likely be a similar introduction on some totally different topic.

Of course, what I really want to do is direct....

Thanks again,

ApK

Still waiting for it to appear at Kobo.

FREE this week at Smashwords with coupon.

It's my birthday at the end of the week, so I thought I'd give a little gift to my fellow MR members:

Square One - A Western Music Theory Primer is free this week, until August 10th, at Smashwords with coupon code: NW48M

A small thank you for all the happy hours I've spent here here on MR, when I'd otherwise have been doing something useless, like working, or caring for my home and family.

For those who want to help put my kids through college, it is of course still available at Amazon.com and other outlets for 99 cents.

Thanks!

ApK
