Recommend a good Composition book?


Recommended Posts

I just finished reading the Idiot's guide to Music Theory, which was a great book. I heard the Idiot's Music Composition book is good, but it covers a lot of the same material for the first half of the book. I'm not sure if I like that or not. (I also heard the Idiot's Songwriting book isn't as good because it's from a different author)


Are there any good Music Composition or Songwriting books you know of? I was also looking to get a book on more advanced Music Theory because I just learned the Major, Minor keys and their modes. I don't know anything about other scaless and their effect.


I'd like to look into getting out of keys during a song, switching keys, and how that works for effect towards the main key.
