Music Theory Workbook


I am currently converting the entire Essential Music Theory site to https to give visitors a more secure browsing experience. Everything should be fine but apologies if anything doesn't work quite as expected over the next couple of weeks.

music theory workbook coming soon

A music theory workbook does at some point become necessary. It's all very well completing the reviews in the Essentials For Music Theory iBook and having them marked immediately, but in an exam you have to actually write the music down on paper and that is where the Essential Music Theory Activity Book comes in. This music theory workbook contains activities and questions linked to the chapters of the Essentials For Music Theory book, no matter which version you have, iBook, kindle, nook or PDF, the chapters are all the same so all relate to the Activity Book. 

You can even choose whether you want a book aimed at younger students or older students/adults. The content and questions are basically the same, but with a few differences as outlined below.
