The first volume starts at the very beginning: what is a note? What is a sharp/flat? How does metrum works?

The explanations and exercises gradually provide an understanding of the basic functioning of the staves.

Further content is the determination of intervals, how the major and minor scales work, and the circle of fifths.

In the final chapter, the chords, inherent in the scale are presented and the first signs of the connection between scales and chords become clear.

All three volumes contain many exercises and explanations and
are also suitable for self-study.

Vol.      2

The second volume deals in more detail with rhythm and the most common time signatures.

In addition, intervals beyond the octave space are now also determined.

In the further course it is mainly about chord inversions and voice leading in the basic cadence in major and minor.

The three modes in minor are explained and finally a brief introduction to the basso continuo.
