I bought this product to help my middle school aged daughter learn some music theory for her orchestra class. The teacher was verbally giving instructions but not really explaining anything or giving the kids any reference materials. It has been very helpful, but is a bit beyond us after the first few chapters. I would definitely recommend it to other parents/students. It provides good examples, background information, explanations, definitions and tips.

I never took music theory in high school, and I had to take a music theory placement test at college orientation. So I thought I would do my best to know some information. I read this book 2 days before my test and it proved to be useful. I passed my test and now I can take my recommended theory classes instead of having to take theory fundamentals. It's good for people who don't know theory, a good place to start. Not for more advanced people though.
