The most comprehensive and integrated package for every music theory classroom.
The Musician’s Guide to Theory and Analysis is a complete package of theory and aural skills resources that covers every topic commonly taught in the undergraduate sequence. The package can be mixed and matched for every classroom, and with Norton’s new Know It? Show It! online pedagogy, students can watch video tutorials as they read the text, access formative online quizzes, and tackle workbook assignments in print or online. In its third edition, The Musician’s Guide retains the same student-friendly prose and emphasis on real music that has made it popular with professors and students alike.
The anthology includes over 100 outstanding teaching pieces written between the seventeenth century and the present. These scores constitute the text’s core repertoire; with the text’s spiral-learning method, students return to each work throughout the theory sequence. The selections represent a wide variety of genres and instruments to engage every student. For the Third Edition, the anthology has been expanded to include more works from the recent past.
