It is always a shame when art -- an aspect of life that should arouse wonder and enthusiasm -- is cloaked in academic dullness. ...Many of the assignments in this workbook call for a good deal of composition. In English class you write themes, in a harmony class you will invent melodies and chord progressions even though your dream is to be a pianist, clarinettist, singer or teacher, rather than a composer. Because it reveals the structure of music from the inside, the experience of composing is invaluable to every musician. Writing your own examples from the start, you will gradually become aware of the inner dynamics of musical form and style. This workbook has 17 chapters, from musical motion and the tonic triad to four-part harmony, piano-style harmony and suspension and pedal point.
