Edly's not pretty, but I love his book just the same
on December 5, 2002
I want you to imagine your favorite school teacher ever. You know - the one who always managed to put a smile on your face, and somehow make learning fun. My personal favorite was my grade three teacher Ms. O'neil, who was not only a nice teacher but also a very pretty woman. Yes, I was hot for teacher. I digress. Edly may not be pretty, but his book gives me the same smile and gentle encouragement that Ms O'Neil offered way back when.
This book is for people who have always wanted to learn music theory, but hate the idea of actually sitting down to try. Edly allows you relax into the learning process, and helps you to think outside the conventional learning box. With lots of great pictures and hand drawn helpfuls, learning becomes fun, interesting and at the risk of sounding redundant or repeating myself, not boring.
Edly's Music Theory is a practical book for practical people. An immensely fun way to learn, CleverJoe recommends this book to practical people everywhere.
