Author Leland Fleming has been teaching music in the church as well as private choral programs for nearly thirty years. What he has noticed over the years of teaching music theory is this: Many people, who could otherwise learn music, are not being helped simply because of the way it is presented. Folks who claim they "just can't understand it" or "it is too complicated" have never been properly instructed in the first place. Once exposed to it in a "not-so-easy format", their minds close up completely and they build walls around the concepts and theory of music. Tearing down those walls is a difficult task, but this is Leland's objective.
Leland has learned how to unplug the complicated methods and present music theory in a very simple, but exhaustive format. He has appealed to those who have had a desire to learn music, but were intimidated by its seemingly complex concepts. Leland builds the concepts very methodically one building block at a time. This allows the students to have solid footing each step of the way. This book is perfect for young adults and adults alike. If you are looking for a simple step-by-step approach, you'll want to get this book. It also comes with internet access to additional supplements to help you along the way.
