Exploring Theory with Practica Musica
This multi-touch music fundamentals textbook offers the student a complete learning experience, combining traditional text content with live music examples and ending each chapter with an interactive quiz. Beginning with the basics of notation, the book assumes no prior knowledge – yet it progresses to more advanced topics such as chord progressions and voice-leading. Exploring Theory can be used either alone or in conjunction with the computer program Practica Musica, which contains a set of interactive activities coordinated with the book. The latest version of the book coordinates with the new iPad app Musica Touch™ which contains ear training and theory activities along with music writing tools.
