To the Student
A programed text is designed to induce you, the student, to take an active part in the learning process. As you use this book you will, in effect, reason your way through the program with the text serving as a tutor. The subject matter is organized into a series of segments called frames. Most frames require a written response that you are to supply after having read and concentrated on the information given. A programed text allows you to check each response immediately, so that false concepts do not take root and your attention is focused on "right thinking." Since each frame builds upon the knowledge conveyed by previous ones, you must work your way through the program by taking each frame in sequence. With a reasonable amount of concentration you should make few mistakes, for each successive step in the program is very small.
A glance at the first page will show that it is divided into two parts. The correct answers appear on the left side. These should be covered with a ruler or a slip of paper (or merely the hand will do). Check your response to a given frame by uncovering the appropriate answer. Your answer need not always be exactly the same as that supplied by the text. Use your common sense to decide if your answer approximates the meaning of the one given. If you should make an excessive number of errors, repeat several of the preceding frames until your comprehension is improved. If this fails to remedy your difficulty, you should seek help from your instructor.
Following each chapter summary, you will find a short series of Mastery Frames. These frames will help you assess your comprehension of the key points of the chapter. Do not continue unless your handling of the Mastery Frames assures your mastery of the preceding material. Along with the correct answers on the left side of the frame are references to the specific frames in the main part of the chapter that cover that subject. These references are in parentheses. This arrangement allows you to focus remedial study on the points missed. Because the Mastery Frames are concerned with the essential matters covered in each chapter, you will find that they are useful for later review.
This book concentrates on the knowledge of music fundamentals. Knowledge alone, however, is but one aspect of your musical development. In order to be useful, knowledge about music must be related to the actual experience of music as sound. To that end, Eartraining Tips appear at the end of each chapter. These exercises are designed for self-study; they are coordinated with the text but may also be used to supplement other eartraining experiences. Do not approach the study of music fundamentals as merely the acquisition of knowledge; bring to bear your musical experiences as both a performer and a listener. Sing or play each item as it is presented. In this way, the relation of symbols to sound will become real and functional.
