This text uses the Phrase Model technique of explaining how tonal music is structured. It is as accurate as Aldwell & Schachter's Harmony and Voice-Leading but it is much more undergraduate-friendly in its language. Please consider this text instead of Benward (terrible, inaccurate) or Kostka/Payne (lacking, misleading). Don't just use the text you had when you were an undergraduate; think for yourself and examine this book.
