    Default Theory and Analysis for the non musician?

    I love a deeper understanding of music, but I don't have a musical background. As a result, I feel like there are the too simplistic intro/appreciation to music books, or the two Piston books I own where I make it about two chapters before I am over my head.

    Is there a happy medium? Something deeper with analysis for the non ?musician

    I'd suggest that this little book is a very good place to start. I was in your situation when I bought it years ago. It assumes that the reader knows essentially nothing about music theory and takes you forward from there. There are exercises at the end of the lessons, and the answers are in the back of the book. I still go back to it from time to time. It's only about $12.00 on Amazon.
