+20 Free Music Books [PDF]



In our desire to continue to provide a window for reading, we have created a list of free books in which we discuss everything concerning such a vast and well-known subject as music. All the books we have collected for you are in PDF format, for your greater benefit.

What we know as music, like any artistic manifestation, is a cultural outcome that has diverse objectives, among which we can mention causing an aesthetic experience in the listener, expressing emotions, feelings, thoughts, circumstances or ideas. Likewise, it has included among its purposes a therapeutic function of great importance through music therapy.

On the other hand, music is also an important factor in the cognitive development of the human being. In addition, it helps with language acquisition, mathematical logical thinking, psychomotor development, learning non-native languages, interpersonal relationships, and strengthening emotional intelligence among others. Thanks to all this, it is considered that music should be part of any current public education plan, and should be recognized as a mandatory or essential subject in basic education.

In this opportunity we have selected more than 20 books about Music in PDF format, so you can have access to all the information related to the subject.

On the other hand, we have included books in Spanish and Portuguese, so that you have the opportunity to enjoy reading in any of these languages.

It is also important to note that all the books that make up our selection are in the public domain or have been released for free distribution.
