5.0 von 5 Sternen Grundlagen 8. März 2013
Von Abby Normal TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wer mit Noten zu tun hat, der stellt schnell fest, dass man es oft mit englischen Bezeichnungen zu tun bekommt. Das ist gelegentlich verwirrend. Mir sollte Music Theory for Dummies in erster Linie dazu dienen, die englische Terminologie gründlich zu lernen.

Und das gelang bestens!

Überrascht war ich, wie gut der Inhalt ist. Das Buch erklärt die Grundlagen. Keiner wird allein nach diesem Buch Sinfonie komponieren können. Aber obwohl es um die Grundlagen der Musiktheorie geht, ist es sehr gründlich und selbst als Hobbymusiker mit etwas Erfahrung habe selbst ich noch das ein oder andere dazulernen können.

Die Grundlagen umfassen Noten, Pausen, Tonarten, Akkorde, Musikformen, Geschichte... Alles sehr verständlich. Fachbegriffe werden wunderbar erklärt. Es gibt viele konkrete Beispiele - sogar Auszüge aus Liedern und aus klassischen Werken.

Wenn es um Musik geht, ist heute eine CD mit Beispielen sinnvoll. Schließlich geht es um das Gehör.

Eine solche CD liegt diesem Buch bei. Für das eBook gibt es die CD als Download. Im Buch findet sich der Link. Dieser ist leicht über die Inhaltsangabe zu finden. Folgt man dem Link (am besten per Kindle-App für den PC!), muss man nur noch den Anweisungen der Website folgen.

Aufgelockert wird die Theorie übrigens durch gelegentlichen, dezenten Humor.

Um sich die Grundlagen der Musiktheorie oder, wie in meinem Fall, die englischen Bezeichnungen anzueignen, kann ich dieses Buch wärmstens empfehlen!

----------------------------

I understand English quite well. My writing English however ist far from perfect. So please bear with me for writing my review in German. But if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not Well Organized or Presented 15. Dezember 2011
Von frankp93 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I can't honestly review Music Theory for Dummies as a beginner, but I hope to suggest who might find it useful - or not.

The book has an odd split between a first half that contains very elementary material about reading notation, intervals, scales, chords and progressions, followed by a later part that describes high-level form and composition ideas from a classical point of view. I don't think the transition works: the first part doesn't adequately prepare you for the second, and I'm not sure how much the second even belongs in this kind of book.

If you're interested in jazz improvisation, there's barely a couple of paragraphs that mention jazz and nothing worth your while to play. If you're interested in computer music, in spite of the pop references sprinkled throughout, there's a single mention of synthesizers in the chapter on tone and timbre; otherwise this book could have been written 40-50 years ago.

If you're a rock or blues player, there's little besides Roman numeral-style outlines of blues and pop song formulas - which is ironic because that's how a lot of people who don't know theory already communicate.

If you're a listener who wants to understand or analyze how music works - there's solid information in here but it's an overview and very compressed. At best it may point you in the direction of other books with more depth.

If you're interested in writing music of whatever genre, there are much better books out there - including the one written by co-author Holly Day, "Music Composition for Dummies".

Personally, I think this material is covered in more depth, with useful exercises, and better writing in Michael Miller's three volume series that includes, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Music Theory, Music Composition, Arranging and Orchestration".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Dummies Winner! 14. Dezember 2011
Von Wilhelmina Zeitgeist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Music Theory For Dummies, with Audio CD is another Dummies winner! I've been playing piano since 1967, guitar for a few years, and have recently started drumming. While working with this book I found myself grudgingly unlearning what I thought I knew and relearning it the right way.

A lot more music theory has been missing from my music background than I realized. Some terms I thought I understood but didn't have as firm of a grasp on it as I thought. Some terms I didn't even want to deal with because the definitions and explanations were so convoluted I couldn't make sense out of it.

I appreciated the logical order in which each topic was discussed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Music Theory for Dummies as a well laid out book that covers a lot of territory for an elementary book 15. Dezember 2011
Von Patrick Regan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Music theory for Dummies takes a beginner from the elementary aspects of music theory, such as rhythm and note placement on staves, to chord construction, scales and the circle of fifths up until a presentation of aspects of the basic forms complete musical pieces and songs often take. The author covers aspects of classical music Jazz and contemporary music. I had a small knowledge of music theory before I read this book but I feel that my knowledge has been much expanded by the reading this book. I especially like the layout of the book. For example, one issue that has always been difficult for me is to understand the difference between open and closed chords. The author cleared this up for me with a page of text and a few well chosen diagrams. The dummies series in general is a pretty good series of books and Music theory for dummies is no exception.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great for reference 15. Mai 2013
Von Peter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I got this book for my musician daughter, who says:

"Music Theory for Dummies is a great book to get you started out with learning music theory. It is written for the person with a strong interest in music theory and who has a passion to learn about it. It is by no means a good option over instruction and interaction with a real teacher, or even a theory textbook.

"Starting off, Dummies assumes you know absolutely nothing about music and begins by explaining the most basic concepts of rhythm and pitch. Their method of teaching rhythm is not novel or breakthrough, but it is detailed. The book teaches note values and rests, and then moves on to time signatures, syncopation; clefs (treble and bass, with a brief look at alto and tenor), whole and half steps, accidentals, pitch identification on piano and guitar, major and minor scales, key signatures (using circle of fifths), intervals and qualities, triads and chords, chord progressions ('this-leads-to-this' method, not model method); phrasing, harmony, form, tempo, dynamics, markings, timbre, acoustics; and is finished with an informative 'Why should I care?' section in the back and a list of famous composers. The appendices in the back hold a glossary of music terms and also piano and guitar position charts. My book came with a CD that played scales and intervals.

"As a musician, then, I see Dummies this way: I understand the book because I understand music already, but I'm not sure if it would be confusing or not to someone with no music background who just pulled it off the shelf to learn a little bit by himself. I don't agree with their order of teaching the concepts, but that could be just me. I do see it, however, as a great place to get started on brushing up on terms if you already know what they're talking about but need a little review.

"I give it 4 stars for being complete and accurate, but I was really hoping for a lot more of a fun, new approach to learning, and I didn't find that. I was also hoping for something that made music theory really super easy with radical ways to remember stuff in a page-gripping book that no one could put down, but I found that it was pretty intense, traditional, and clear-cut. As with any other music book, it will require dedication to stick with it, but someone with a love for music and drive to learn will do just as well here as anywhere else."

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not for Dummies (like me) 8. Juli 2012
Von Brooke L. Morris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I am generally a fan of the "for dummies" series, but this book, especially the section on intervals, throws terms at you too fast. I have never taken an instrument lesson. Most of the reviews on Amazon seem to be from those people looking for a refresher. I wanted to expand my love of music, but by chapter ten I had to put this one down, more confused than illuminated. The book should have been longer, less dry and more for dummies like myself. Disappointed.
