Book Description

An accessible and clear volume spanning the entire theory course; HARMONY AND VOICE LEADING; 4th Edition (PDF); begins with coverage of basic concepts of harmony and theory and moves into coverage of advanced dissonance and chromaticism. It emphasizes the linear aspects of music as much as the harmonic; and introduces large-scale progressions — harmonic and linear — at an early stage. The 4th edition now includes a chapter introducing species counterpoint and integrates that material into the rest of the textbook. A new Premium Website for students will provide interactive; guided exercises for new material covered in every unit and musical examples from the literature in both streaming and downloadable format. The Instructor Companion Site will include Guidelines for Instructors; a new instructor’s manual written by Allen Cadwallader.
