This self-paced, auto-instructional book in two volumes has become a “classic” in the field of music. A wealth of clearly laid-out lessons and exercises provide learners with continual feedback and reinforcement as they work through the activities and assignments at their own pace.
Chapter topics include some definitions, the structure of tonality, triads in root position: doubling and spacing, triads in root position: voice leading, triads in first and second inversion, introduction to seventh chords and the dominant seventh, phrase structure and cadences, nonharmonic tones, harmonic progression, and the technique of harmonization.
For music studio teachers and students, and use in preparatory music programs.
