Mark McGrain (Author). Honestly, coming from a classical music this book gives you so much information about the most basic thing in music with which all musicians work - notation! I even found it fun to understand why the notes look like they are, what is the meaning behind every symbol and how to notate in the RIGHT way. Not many do so, but if you write music, ANY kind of music I really recommend the book.

Mark McGrain's "Music Notation" was written before such electronic possibilities became widespread, when communicating written musical ideas accurately and efficiently demanded correct and legible notation skills. I'd argue it's still a valuable skill to have and this book lays out the principles in a thorough, progressive way, requiring little more than manuscript paper, pencil and straightedge

Honestly, coming from a classical music this book gives you so much information about the most basic thing in music with which all musicians work - notation! I even found it fun to understand why the notes look like they are, what is the meaning behind every symbol and how to notate in the RIGHT way. Not many do so, but if you write music, ANY kind of music I really recommend the book. It's not a theory book, this book is teaching how to write notes and everything on the staff the right way.

I don't really care about the author's personality, as stated by another reviewer. What I care about is the quality of the content of the book, and this book is exactly what I needed! As a music major I am constantly writing compositions and was not happy with how unprofessional and sloppy they looked. I believe this book is going to be a big help in correcting some of my writing flaws. It has basic, easy to understand examples, with exercises at the end of each chapter (I photocopy them so I don't have to write in the book). Learning to correctly write a manuscript is one of the most valuable skills a musician learns. This book will help you do it correctly.

In this day and age, I didn't expect a book about music notation to teach me how to draw the symbols. I highly doubt that I will ever need the skill to draw notation symbols, but it's nice to have in case I'm out and about and get a wild hair and my battery dies on my tablet. I think some of the practice exercises are overkill, like asking you to draw a simple percussion clef 30 times. I'm exaggerating of course, but not by much. In all fairness this book is rather old, relatively speaking, so I don't believe when this book was written that there were any music notation software applications available. That being said, why not update this book or create a new edition that includes sidebars for us digital folks? Other than that, I am very happy with the content and although I have a bachelor's degree in music education, I am pleased to find that I'm still learning a few new things along the way, that I guess they just assumed I already knew being at the college level. If you're looking for a heavy hitter with tons of detail about notation, this is not your book, but it is definitely a great refresher if you have a background in music and maybe want to learn a few new things along the way.

This is a decent basic notation textbook, and it was a good review for me, but I think I did need something more. I'll keep searching. I've mostly been looking online for more obscure or complex notation guides, but this is generally good for our household.

It`s very basic but this book will correct you all your faults in music notation, if you are a teacher or arranger you have to buy this.
