Finding The Right Pitch: A Guide To The Study Of Music Fundamentals, listed at worldbetbooks.com and sold here on Gumroad as a PDF, is a comprehensive excursion into the world of music fundamentals.
Designed primarily (though not exclusively) for college students, this book prepares music majors for the study of harmony, but also meets the needs of non-music majors who would complete a course in music fundamentals as an elective.
Finding The Right Pitch: A Guide To The Study Of Music Fundamentals includes discussions of pitch, scale, major and minor modes, and key signatures; a rigorous exploration of both elementary and advanced concepts in rhythm and meter; step-by-step guides for the construction of intervals; step-by-step guides for the construction of triads within the major-minor tonal system; four-part texture and principles for doubling the chord tones of triads; singing triads in all positions from a common bass pitch; the church modes, the cadential six-four chord, the dominant seventh, cadences, and nonharmonic tones; singing the dominant seventh in all positions from a common bass pitch; practical exercises in rhythm and meter, including several patterns for two hands that promote bilateral hand-to-hand coordination, a skill usually reserved for drummers.
The study of music fundamentals concludes with ninety worksheets for either practice or exams. 392 pages.
