About the Author:

Thomas E. Benjamin has recently retired as Chair of the Department of Music Theory at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. A composer, conductor, performer, and music theorist with more than 40 compositions published and recorded, he also holds fellowships and awards from the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Review:

"I read in your preface that this text tried to be very precise and to the point with minimal prose. I do think this is a terrific point to make. It gives you what you need and that's it. . . . It's straight and to the point. . . . I REALLY like the I-II-III-IV, A-B-C, 1-2-3, format. It really seems more organized and easier to read. It breaks everything up in short nuggets of information and therefore doesn't seem overwhelming to take in." -Sharon Nauman

"Written text is kept to a minimum. Instead, the emphasis is on graphics, i.e., the notes. In some texts, the explanations of chords, intervals, scales, voice leading, etc. can be more confusing that it need be. There are copious exercises. Theory at this level is best learned "hands on." The exercises are present so that students need not be accomplished pianists to play through them as they complete them." -Gayle Murchison
