Many DJs, gigging musicians, and electronic music producers understand how to play their instruments or make music on the computer, but they lack the basic knowledge of music theory needed to take their music-making to the next level and compose truly professional tracks. Music Theory for Computer Musicians from Course Technology and written by Dr. Michael Hewitt explains music theory fundamentals in the most simple and accessible way possible. Concepts are taught within the framework of today's recording software and MIDI keyboard environment.

Beneath all the enormously different styles of modern electronic music lie certain fundamentals of the musical language that are exactly the same no matter what kind of music you write.
