I'm so glad I was able to get my hands on a copy of this book before it disappears for good! This book really should be republished and made required reading in undergraduate (and graduate) music schools. I have a MM in music and never studied some of the rudimentary technicals of writing music. Sad, but true. When you have a cluster chord which note-head goes where? Multi-voice writing requires aligning rhythms differently than simply having two notes appearing on the same beat (you align noteheads in one case and stems in another). These types of technicals are very important. We've absorbed many by wrote without realizing why or we know something looks odd but don't know why. All the technical details you want to know are what is covered by this book. I wish I had this (and Elaine Gould's book too!) years ago while I was still in school. The beginning of the book also covers a history of notation methods leading up to modern western notation methods which was very interesting and much of the information was novel to me even though I studied music history. You learn the "epitaph of seikelos" but you don't learn (at least I didn't) what was actually going on with it. This is not to imply that Read decodes the epitaph, only that he does delve more deeply into the history of notation methods themselves.

As this book is often referred to as a standard reference work on the subject, I approached it with rather high expectations, but it turned out to be a disappointment. Granted, a good deal of notation elements is there, but too often only the surface is scratched. For instance: a clear distinction between the graphic design of ties and slurs is not given, up-stem / down-stem rules are too simplistic, as are guide lines for ornament placement.

Some areas are almost entirely overlooked, like tabulatures (either historical or modern) or basso continuo; they are specialistic areas, true, but so are many points included in the book.

In cases where I can claim some competence, I found many errors; for instance, Italian (my own language) equivalents for musical terms are often wrong (either misspelled or non-existent words); adding to the complaints already given about jazz or string coverage, I wonder if this book is not significantly over-rated.

The symbol index at the end is a nice idea, but it is too little to recommend it.

Excellent resource, I finished parts 1 & 2, and am now on part 3. The first two parts deal with the nuts and bolts of music notation, and part 3 approaches specific score instrument types, vocal scores, etc. E.g., keyboard notation, vocals, strings, percussion, etc. I highly recommend it, you will likely be happy with this book.

This is one of the most informative and INTERESTING books I've ever read concerning the subject of musical notation. It goes into the history of notation and shows the evolution of how it began to where it is now, and where it is going including newer experimental notational methods. I won't go into detail as previous reviewers have done a great job of that, but even if you never write a single note of music, there is much to be gained by reading this book. What I like most is the critical detail of EXACT procedure when notating music by hand. Computerized music notation programs do all the notating details for you and the composer who relies solely on these programs for musical notation is not understanding what it is that they are doing. This book clearly explains, using plain English, how to go about the task of hand-writing music with many, many examples and even tests to see if you understand what you are learning. I have a degree in Music and I have learned more from this book about music notation than I ever did in music school.

I can't say enough good things about this book and it is my favorite music notation book so far. I have several others.

I have been playing in a college symphony orchestra with players who have much more training than I. Some of the notation for orchestra playing is obscure. This book (unlike, say, the Harvard Dictionary of Music) had clear, explicit descriptions of the meaning of various orchestral notations one often doesn't find in chamber music. The symbol index at the end is very helpful.

Whenever I can't fall asleep, I reach for Gardner Read's book. There's a chapter on how the sharp symbol came to be. Gripping reading. Some of the information I'll never need but nothing has been left out in understanding how music notation came to be. Much of the information is passe if you are using a music notation program which will force you to put the correct notes in each measure.

I have been using this text since it was first published. It is the most exhaustive and clearly written text on notating music, and it covers all instruments and instrumental groups. I purchased this copy as a gift for one of my students.
Good service. The book is a classic.
