Book cover of Introduction to Digital Music with Python Programming by Michael S. Horn

Introduction to Digital Music with Python provides a foundation in music and code for the beginner and shows how coding empowers new forms of creative expression while simplifying and automating many of the tedious aspects of production and composition.

With the help of online, interactive examples on Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) platforms called TunePad and EarSketch, this book covers the fundamentals of rhythm, chord structure and melodic composition alongside the basics of digital production. Each new concept is anchored in a real-world musical example that will have you making beats in a matter of minutes.

Including core programming concepts such as loops, variables, lists and functions, Introduction to Digital Music with Python is designed for beginners of all backgrounds, requiring no previous experience with music or code, including undergraduates and aspiring professionals.
