    Music Theory: Ear Training And Interval Study Course

    There are only 12 notes in the musical alphabet and when you've mastered them, you've mastered music. The Twelve Notes of Music, a unique patent-applied-for method, takes an in-depth look at each individual note and shows you how it associates with
    other notes for a full understanding of the tonal structure of melodies, harmonies, and chords. This course will give insight to beginners
    and advanced musicians alike.

    Course Layout

    Introduction - Music at its most simplified explanation

    The Twelve Notes of Music is universal for guitar, bass guitar, and piano. It is simple enough to teach to a 5-year-old child, yet informative enough to be useful for musicians of all ages.

    Chapter 1 - Pick a note, any note
    The method in The Twelve Notes of Music lets you blindly pick any note on your instrument and build a musical key based on
    that note.

    The intervals
    After the student has picked a root note in Chapter 1, each succeeding chapter will introduce a new interval. Each chapter explains the uniqueness of tonal relationships between each interval and the root note, pointing out which work best as melodies vs. harmonies; which
    are pleasant vs. dissonant; and which have major, minor, and neutral qualities.

    Chapter 13 - The octave
    Once you reach the octave, it is recommended that you build a second octave. This gives even the young beginner a clear understanding
    of the repetitive cycles found in music.

    Scale and chord formulas
    After you've learned all of the intervals in a key of music, The Twelve Notes of Music offers several formulas for building common scales and chords.

    Apply it again
    The Twelve Notes of Music is a short workbook, yet it can be reapplied to every key of music. Once you've learned one key, the author suggests that you reapply the workbook to another note. This reinforces the universal qualities of notation intervals: the mechanics
    of the music we hear. According to MJS, a student who applies The Twelve Notes of Music to 2 or more keys will usually begin
    to understand key changes and transposing to all 12 keys at an early stage of musical training.

    Free lesson support
    With the purchase of The Twelve Notes Of Music you also gain the author, Mark John Sternal, as a teacher. If you ever have any questions pertaining to the book you can contact MJS Music Publications online. All book questions are answered by Mark.

    Very Basic

    Comments about MJS Music Publications The Twelve Notes of Music (Book):

    I personally learned nothing from this book. It essentially runs through a chromatic scale and describes each interval. If you know any music theory whatsoever this book will teach you nothing. If you would like to gain all you can from this book, learn to differentiate each interval by ear, and to play each interval everywhere the guitar. The concept is a good one, but the book itself is completely unnecessary.
