The ideas presented in Music Works comes from the experience of teaching music composition in a classroom setting to students largely not familiar with music notation or basic musical concepts.  The driving force behind this book is to help learners explore music through the act of composing and arranging their original ideas. On some topics the approach will reflect what is typically found in standard approaches to teaching Western Music Harmony but in other areas it will seem quite different. Precedent is given to strategies that help the learner engage in the concepts in the most immediate way.
