The upgraded version is very good April 1 2012
By mchase - Published on
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
I purchased the original hard copy book and CD from a bookstore many years back. Found doing the book work to be dull and stopped learning after a few weeks. Decided to revisit music theory and recently purchased the upgraded version. The interactive approach and exercises made this material more interesting. If you have avoided music theory in the past and want to learn the basics in a more interactive way the new CD-ROM version is a great buy.

Needed for online music class June 24 2013
By Carrie - Published on
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
This software was really easy to use, and I had no problems installing it on my laptop (Windows 7). The program itself is really easy to follow and provides a lot of information and practice in each lesson. It starts off very basic and gradually moves into harder theory.

I needed this for an online music class that I was taking and not only did it help me with my piano playing, but our midterm and final were based off of this program. Going through each lesson completely helped me to ace both exams and gain a greater understanding of music theory.

There were a few times in which the software did not perform well. In the review section of lesson 1, there were a few questions in which the pictures associated with the answers did not show up. Answering the question correctly was nearly impossible. This happened one more time further into the lessons. This is the only complaint I have about this program.

My 9 yr old daughter is learning piano, and I am going to let her do at least the first several lessons over the basic stuff. I think it will help her to better understand what she sees in her piano book and also allows her to practice what she has learned through the review at the end.

Music Theory July 11 2013
By DJ Morris - Published on
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
Alfred's Essentials of Music is a great way to work through musical theory. The explanations are complete and detailed. The author makes the student think about each aspect of the music, beginning with basic theory and progressing to more complex theories without losing the student. As an adult learner of piano, having a tool like Alfred's Music Theory has helped me learn the piano faster and with better knowledge of the score. This material is college level theory that provides a high level challenge to any lover of music. I highly recommend this product.
This program is tough to install, and impossible to activate. Nov. 9 2015
By Anthony K. Nash - Published on
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
As of now (11/9/2015), I had trouble Installing the program, but finally figured out it does not setup like 99% of all programs I have ever used on my computer. Once it was installed, I was prompted to activate the program by entering the "super secret squirrel" code included on the CD sleeve. No, it does NOT activate. I tried several times: all capital, all lower case, rearranging the sections of the code, all to no avail. (The code windows all capital letters, no matter if cap lock is on or not, but tried it both ways.)

Another bad thing.... if the program is not standard in how it is to be installed, how about including some written directions? There were none.

If I can, and if the program attains usability, I will try to update thei review. At the moment, I am not happy with Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory 3.
