From the Preface:
This anthology is designed for use in introductory music courses, where the ability to read music is not a prerequisite. The unique system of high-lighting employed in this book enables students to follow full orchestral scores after about one hour of instruction. This system also has the advantage of permitting students who can read music to perceive every aspect of the score. It is felt that our system of highlighting will be of greater pedagogical value than artificially condensed scores which restrict the student’s vision to pre-selected elements of the music. The use of scores in introductory courses makes the student’s listening experience more intense and meaningful, and permits the instructor to discuss music in greater depth.
I do not read or play music. Please email me should you have any questions about this book and I will do my best to answer them.
