'Within a local universe.' Welcome. This book is designed to be a stand alone curriculum for those with an interest in music. Based on one's own curiosity and the things they want to understand about music, common music vocabulary words are linked through topical discussions, creating an overview of the theories we have in our musics. While suggestions to internet wiki reference pages are included, these links are not active, They are elective choices that each internet capable reader can choose, thus moving the discussions beyond this book if such curiosities are within a reader.

About this 'e - book.' There's two basic 'roots of information' in this book that grows the tree of knowledge that foundations this work. One is the artistic and theoretical principles associated with our Americana musics. And the second is the 'artful science and numerical maths' we use to physically measure up create our instruments, tune them up, and as a way to identify pitches in key centers. Taken together, my sincere hope that future generations will have a record for mixing the art with science, to recreate all our future Americana musics.

Home school curriculum / rote learning. Author's note. With a few decades of writing and teaching experience now, I know 'discovery learning' for beginning musicians and artists is often a near vertical learning curve, for vocabulary bases discussions and new learners don't have the music words yet. Well, we've all been newby's somewhere along the way, and that's why we're all here today :) So, the easy e-book curriculum magic fix is to start at the START.

Pure beginners. While it might take a few months of daily study to complete this first page, for it includes an 'a to z' in music vocabulary, when paired with the dozen written measurements, makes for one solid music theory book for all.

~ start ~

Ace it :) If a learner studies hard and aces just this one start page, and earlier age the better, then they've rote learned a fair list of terms, ideas, concepts, and have the ability to 'write' out all sorts of musical stuff in various ways.

Strengthening by rote to be creative. Encouraging the mind to think, and strengthen through the ways of rote learning and memorization, especially at the younger ages is the goal here. And music is a perfect art to do this. To study and grow our mental abilities, translating into a full on physical doing while being creative. Nice school mix.

Have a love for music in your home ? Recall that all the combined Amer Afro Euro musics we love was all once new too. The super burner song "Sweet Georgia Brown" is nearing its 100th birthday, but it too was once brand spanking new. Newly minted as the saying once go'ed :) So here today, our own music learning and making now is new. And for kids, its all brand new :)

And beyond the start. Forgive my ad plug here but I hope you realize that beyond the START page in this e-book, there's a vast universe of BA college level musical and art studies to explore ...

Then there's the 300 or so 'wiki ~ ____ " suggestions.

That with a computer mouse click / highlight / go fetch search, this e-primer creates an amazing list of topics to further explore into the www. beyond. Exploring to Wiki alone on the web makes this e-book a portal to many Masters and PHD level topics of study, and easy dozen of musical topics and discipline to pursues. Everything from history through the sciences, to music's place in culture and inclusion in our other fine arts.

We'll stay connected. Each of our home school centers use their state's borders to organize the homeschoolers there. In Alaska, we've the AKIMI association that will help implement the U Y M / E M G curriculum in your home town. We'll also get a copy all our home school books to your public library.
