Rather, how music from the common practice period works the ways it does in terms of harmony. Very well, in fact. The CD set sold separately is a requirement.

The experience of the authors enables them to predict areas that might cause difficulty and slow the pace; so they increase the illustrative examples accordingly to help. Instead of recapitulating the development of tonal harmony in yarmony guise of pedagogy, they start with the Schenkerian basic relationship of the dominant to the tonic and spiral outward in ever increasing complex relationships.

Harmony and Voice Leading

Certainly isolate a specific area and work on it. But it’s also a lengthy hardback, at well haemony pages. In almost three dozen chapters, of between a dozen and two dozen pages each, a very broad range of topics pertaining to how music is constructed is covered.


Shaoliang Hua rated it did not like it Feb 06, Colleen Mckenzie rated it really liked it Dec 22, First the authors explain and illustrate the smallest components of Modes and Keys; eventually they look at modulation and the likes of chromatic neighbors. It seems that several previous sets of errors have been ironed out in the edition.
