  • What to Listen For in Music

    Anthony Esland Music Theory Exams Tutor (Tonbridge) Picture A book I enjoyed reading while studying music at college is Aaron Copland's 'What to Listen For in Music', published by Signet Classics. It's a wonderful insight into classical music by a master composer of the 20th century and is written in an approachable, easy-going style - highly recommended!
