What makes a collection of notes a good piece of music, something that gets stuck in our brain? Why is it that we keep listening and enjoying the music of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven - composers long dead two hundred years ago? What makes a piece of music memorable? What are the rules of the grammar behind the music of the great masters? If we can understand the rules - then we could also teach them to kids. The first chapter of this book explains in plain words (or tones) the grammar of classical music. The next chapters describe a practical method that could be used by kids (or any adult interested in composing good music) to learn the basics, and some more, directly from the works of the great composers of classical music.
