"The nature of musical rhythm and offer simple approaches to achieving rhythmic clarity and vitality and a sense of structural coherence." (loc: 2267)
"Even in instrumental music, which does not have words, our familiarity with the language of music gives us a sense of which notes in a phrase require emphasis. As in speech, we create that emphasis by making a louder sound, or by pausing minutely before a sound, or by both of these methods." (loc: 2387)
