"These books, and your capacity to understand them, are just the same in all places. Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing."

These books ... :) This 'e' book is designed for an exciting and rigorous one full year of study, including the main topics of college prep curriculums. Presented in three main sections for a fall, spring and summer semesters, there are numerous links between the discussions within the sections that create 'continuations of essential conversations of next semester ideas', for the more knowledgeable readers here to explore.

First semester covers the origins of our 12 pitches and their evolutions into the nuts, bolts and structures of our Americana styles. Intervals, loops, groups, arpeggios, chords etc., building one into another as the components evolve. This work is completed with a test and measure quiz for each of the 10 topical chapters.

The second semester's work focuses on the correlations that evolve when one of the 12 pitches is our chosen key center pitch. This basis covers near all of our styles.

The third semester is for learning songs and improvisation, reading notation and getting ready for more formal degree studies, such as an AA or BA in arts, music education and performance programs.

Included also are a few 'advanced' ideas taught today at music colleges. Mostly about musical time and mostly applied to blues and jazz, theory and evolutions of chord substitutions, based on the examination of the evolutions of existing art, which creates a new way forward with the same old super energizer ... the arpeggios :)

... why an 'e' book by subscription ? just easier :)

So why a subscription? It's just easier all 'round and way more internet secure for everybody. We each get to work from our own internet devices, whatever they may be, wherever they are and whenever we get curious about our musics. The fee you pay is secured through all your own channels via PayPal, who's been doing this for a while now. And if and when my .com gets hacked again, I just scrub my spot on the server back to factory and voila, back in biz, just takes an hour or so.

And 'by subscription', there's now an added time incentive for you to 'get after it', and read through the basics here. And if my narrative skill is up to the task, and the theory bug bites, your own excitement of learning and discovery kicks in to energize learning this basic curriculum. For understanding music is within everyone's reach, we each just have to find the right combinations of words, elements, and their sounds, to have it all make some sense.

Subscription also enables artists to form study groups, even to start the work together, creating their own cyberschool classroom to share ideas and explore their art. By internet subscription, this becomes a global reach. And there's renewals of course, if necessary. And author amended as necessary, as new discoveries made, documented and added to our dialogues.

~ about these texts ~

How is this text written? These books are based on the principles of self directed, discovery learning. The musical interests, knowledge and experiences each unique reader holds, helps to locate and create the first steps in their studies within the text. Once engaged, their own curiosities can direct their discoveries through choosing hyperlinked vocabulary words, which take the reader to new discussions of the vocabulary.

This overarching form and word connectivity creates pathways to accelerate the learning for each reader, based on their individual artistic interests. For all styles share the same pitches, some musics just going further into the arpeggios to create a style's own unique colors. A reader accelerates their own learning by clicking 'past' discussions that contain information they already know. By taking the links included in that discussion, we explore how this information provides the basis of other evolutions of other components. Or conversely, stopping along their path to sure up that knowledge, needed to create their art. For example, take this link to see.

This link of 'scale / arpeggio / chord' has three essential components. Once through the link, if you do not know all three, there are links to review the organic source of each within our silent architecture. If you already know all three, then there are links to advance their individual evolutions. If this all sounds like a rather tricky process to negotiate, you're correct. It is.

But this educational philosophy of self directed learning just might be a better way forward for some learners. And when combined with my curriculum philosophy and old fashion rote learning, as done in these 'e' books, we just might get the best of both. The ancient ways, a new perspective, motored along by modern tech. This all to capture and understand a body of knowledge, that while surely finite in many aspects of its theory, knows no bounds in the creative realms we artists get to hang in :)

In creating this work, and knitting together the story it tells, we need to explore how we create musical pitches. Thus we go all the way back to first Mother Nature and then Pythagoras, and the natural way the pitches were combined to sound good together. Here the friendship of 'music and math' begins, with the early sciences measuring up and organizing of the pitches.

And while our main interest is with all things Americana, as we explore its roots, we find ourselves wanting to understand its three main contributors. Termed here as the 'Amer ~ Afro ~ Euro' influences, we find our survey spanning from Bach to Coltrane. For in exploring the work of these two giants, we can create a understanding of how our identical music resources are shaped to create musics of an era, of styles and genres, from the classics to jazz and near everything in between over the course of our American centuries.

For the silly rhyming songs for kids, the storyline pitches for the telling of our folk tales, to finding the blue notes and the rocking them on, into pop and lyrical hooks and off to jazz it all up, we can trace back all of it back to our common roots, and create an understanding of how a musical style, and its historical character on our timeline, are all shaped by the exact same pitches.

So what do you think is going to advance your understanding of music ? And is that info here. Chances are if you can phrase up your music question with a few musical words, then there's some common ground for us and a way forward. And to get you further on down the road, you questions create pathways to explore. Like 'what if ... or 'why is ... ?' All journeys need a first step.

~ all are welcome here ~

All are welcome here. All who have an interest, even a love of music, will find things to learn about in this text. Even those who will not even try to carry a tune in a bucket ? Yep, everyone. If you love music, there's always a chance someway for the magic to happen :) And for good measure, we added a bucket, of sorts :)

Might this book help a friend of yours? Giving a musician you love or a lover a music a subscrition to this book is a yearlong investment well worth considering. For there is a span of topics, history, theory, arts, time and rhthms. Suggestions for transitioning classical styles to our Americana weave and its improvisation. For most of our musics are rote learned, so played from memory not a written music score.

~ about the author ~

Jacmuse and 'Twister' 2015

Author Jacmuse wrote music education texts during a 30 year span of study and performing, research and writing, based on the historical evolutions of how we've tuned up our pitches. And this in conjuction with the study of Bach and Coltrane, and the Americana blues in between, his edcuational philosophy was formed.

For Jacmuse, these newer modern 'e' editions are a dream come true, for they created an opportunity to write a music educational text that asks the reader what they desire to know that will advance their own art. Are you ready yot ask yourself; what is it about music that I want to better understand ... ?

That the words we each use to describe our own musics become the keywords, that in an 'e' book so written, link up together to create intuitive pathways to explore on through the nuts and bolts of a standard music curriculum. It's exploring what happens along the way, that perks our curiosity, that gets us a .and on to a better understand of music.

For example, pick one of these common music keywords and click on it, then explore the links that come along as your own curiosity suits your interests.

These keywords are from here linked into various beginning spots within the incomplete editions of my books, posted for free worldwide on the web.
