Recommends it for: Music students, Teachers and to those who are interested in Theory
Recommended to Nizam Dale by: My teacher (It was a present given by my teacher)
This is the 2nd book of the AB Guide to Music Theory for higher grades of the ABRSM theory exams (grade 6-8).
My teacher gave me this book as a present :)
A really good book when it comes to preparing for the higher grade theory exams. But, you can't only have this book when it comes to higher grades. My teacher used various of different books to teach me about harmony, counterpoint, contrapuntal, etc etc
I don't use this book that often. Because like I mentioned above, I need other books to help

Shelves: music
Lots of examples are given to elaborate more on each point. It helps you understand how music is written, personally I'm enjoying the instruments chapters the most (strings, woodwind, brass, persuasions and keyboard). Though It's not an easy book but it's a must read for those studying music especially for higher grades.
