A short course in a long subject 2008/5/13
投稿者 Thomas W. Day - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
Music Composition for Dummies is much more than a basic music theory book or a collection of musical ideas. Most folks who have enough theory behind them to be able to create music could use a little help in finding inspiration, techniques, and background to implement their creations. This book focuses on that aspect of composition. The authors' style of composition is not forced on the reader, but a variety of techniques and resources are offered which will assist you in finding your voice and enhancing your creativity.

As a long-suffering play-by-ear guitarist, the section on scales and modes was especially helpful. When I have used scales other than the few I am comfortable with, I tend to sound like I'm simply running the scale. The exercises in this section helped me find melodies in those scales and made the "Circle of Fifths" into more of a tool than a mystical phrase often used, but rarely comprehended. The section titled "Finding Melody in Your Instrument" was particularly useful in helping me break old habits in chord progressions and intervals. Chapter 9, "Harmonizing with Melodies," added even more to that pallet.

I doubt that I'll ever writing anything worthy of actual orchestration, but the section on "Composing for the Standard Orchestra" gave me insight into writing for instruments that I rarely experience outside of others' recordings. I usually use synthesizers for my orchestral instruments, but the formal background provided by this chapter enhances my ability to use those artificial instruments in a more natural setting.

There is a lot of practical information about writing for a variety of markets, from commercial jingles to orchestras. Scott Jarrett has a broad background in many areas of musical composition (including every one of the styles described in the book) and his experience in creating, notating, and producing music for these genres shines through the text.

A previous reviewer mistook "industrial music" for the little heard and rarely interesting popular form, but the authors' were commenting on a different subject: "not the dance music, but the music of the working world that is used for specific, usually commercial, purpose." I have no clue where that reviewer found the link to rap, but you have to wonder what some folks are writing about in their reviews. The same goes for the weird take on "random notes." Read the book, you'll find that there is a time for randomness and a time for scale-based melody. Enough said.

3.5 stars for excellent appendix 2013/3/30
投稿者 sparky_magic_rainbow - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
I have mixed feelings about this book. It's repetitive and tends to gloss
over important concepts like passing notes and grace notes. OTOH there are
terrific explanations for standard and non-standard orchestral arrangements
as well as a concise range charts for every instrument. The appendix contains
handy charts of all 7 Greek modes for all major and minor scales. There's also
a chart of all chord triads and sevenths for all notes on the scale.

Less Than I Expected But Worthwhile 2014/5/13
投稿者 John A Lee III - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I’m not sure what I expected. Perhaps I was looking for more of the nuts and bolts of music theory along with the “magic formula” to make me into a “composer”. There is a little of that in this book. Some rudiments of music theory are covered but a real foundation would be more helpful… as is freely admitted by the authors of this book.

Perhaps I was seeking to demystify the essentially mysterious (for me) artistic endeavor of composing music. The authors go a little in this direction also, speaking of sources of inspiration and providing little tidbits such as “Finding Melodies Where You Least Expect Them.”

I was certainly expecting information and “rules of thumb” for the use of chords, tempo progression and the other tools of the trade. That’s definitely in the book and probably the most valuable part for me.

Also present is a plethora of information that is only indirectly associate with composition but would be important for a person seeking to make a living in composition. This includes advice on how to solicit venues for performance, copyrights, working with agents, how to produce a “demo” and other such topics.

After reading cover to cover, I am no more a composer now than I was when I began. I didn’t really expect the book to provide talent where talent is lacking. I understand a bit more about the process of composition and have learned something of how music theory is applied to composition. For that, I am satisfied. The book was not what I expected but I learned something and that is always worthwhile to me.

Good Book 2012/3/17
投稿者 Elio - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
It's a good book, very helpful with it's broad aproach on issues concerning music writing. The text provides a general vision on melody, harmony, composing and so on. I think a basic knowledge of theory is required, to be more useful.
Light and easy reading.
