Slow build but good.

I started this book excited to learn theory. Unfortunately the first 12 chapters are exploring history and not so much theory related. I almost lost interest. The first 12 chapters were really repetitive me. Once chapter 13 started I was inundated to theory and knowledge. This just knowledge just built on itself. It was fantastic. By the end of this book I was excited to bring out my musical instruments and explore the knowledge I gained. I am sure I will be going through chapter 13-27 over and over. There is a lot to take in. Excited for this. Great choice.

10 Chapters in...still no music theory

Vague, redundant talk of benefits to learning but very little actual theory . Mr. Author, if I'm buying your audio book on music theory, I'm obviously already vested in the benefits of learning. 10 chapters of circular talk about why to learn music theory, who uses music theory, and unspecified ways to learn music theory sort of suggests you really don't have that much to say about music theory and your just making up stuff to fill time. A person new to music will have only learned on thing in these first 10 chapters...whole steps and half steps between notes on the musical scale. Much, much more should have been accomplished by now.

Narrator lacks the voice inflection to make you feel as though you are in a personal conversion. Fairly high pitched monotone makes it quite obvious you're being read to.

Buyer's remorse. The extensive number of 5-star ratings makes one wonder about their legitimacy.

I am very satisfied when I listen this audio book.

Some instruments are more suitable for some styles than others. If you’re a fan of rock and metal, you might prefer to learn the electric guitar or the drums.

This audio book enables me to learn individual..

One good way to do this is to look for song covers on youtube. Sometimes you might even find links to sheet music in the video descriptions.

Sharing this audible self motivated for beginners.

This is usually the case for young children as their music preferences are still being shaped.
