about

LUCA ANDREA GIORDANO lives in Italy. He holds doctorate degrees in Foreign Languages, Modern Philology, Vocal Performance (Opera and Chamber music) and Oboe. He is dedicated at being a linguist and interpreter assisting professional departments at various Italian Conservatories in English and French. Also, he is an author of extensive analytical works in musicology, linguistics and composition with various publishers. He also performs frequently as a classical singer and oboist at national and international levels.

This music theory introduces learners to the basic concepts of western musical language including pitch, duration, scales, keys, intervals, metre, rhythm, ornaments, tuplets, harmony, cadences and other related areas. The outline is ordered sequentially by topic in order to facilitate a stepwise growing understanding while reading. The intuitive and ground-breaking method is based on effective and intelligible definitions that will clarify even the most convolute topics. In this regards, the book is intended for students with little or no musical background as well as for those who have some familiarity but wish to deepen their knowledge and broaden their musical horizons. The last section contains a basic glossary intended for a quick and practical consultation (syntax of music, forms, and techniques of different genres).
