How does music actually work? We derive from first principles of Physics and Computation the following fundamental phenomena of music: the Major Scale, the Standard Chord Dictionary, and the difference in feeling between the Major and Minor Triads.

This text is primarily designed to serve as a textbook for a college-level music theory fundamentals course. However, it also has the flexibility to serve equally well for a typical core curriculum college-level Music Theory I or Harmony I course.
The harmonica is much more than a mere toy; it can produce rich music that is impossible for many other instruments. It is easy to learn; no need to remember any fingerings etc., just remember that the notes ascend in a certain way.

An inquiry based approach to learning about music provides flexible lessons that deepen learners' understanding of music. This hands-on experience also provides practice in self-directed learning that can be applied in any area.
