The rhythm lessons in this text contain clear and concise academic information and explanations. Following every new rhythm taught are many rhythmic examples designed for students to perform – helping to cement their understanding of the new rhythmic element. At the end of each lesson is a worksheet with theory and aural transcription exercises beginning with easy simple and compound time rhythms such as crotchets (quarter notes) and quavers (eighth notes) up to very complex rhythms including syncopation, ties, mixed metre etc.
Scales, Intervals and Melody
The scales, interval and melody lessons deal with diatonic, pentatonic, modal, chromatic and other scale forms, all diatonic and chromatic intervals and melodies for practising and transcribing in all taught keys. Worksheets follow each lesson giving visual and aural analysis exercises for recognising the tonality of melodies, writing intervals and interval recognition exercises and practicing the skills required for melodic transcriptions. These melodic transcriptions begin with simple single line dictations and moves in sequential steps to more complex two, three and four part dictations.
Chords and Chord Progressions
The chords and chord progression lessons give students a theoretical and aural understanding of the commonly found chord types (including 7th chords) and teaches students to write and recognise (transcribe) these chords within diatonic chord progressions.
