For courses in Music Theory, Harmony, Comprehensive Musicianship, and Materials of Music.

Created for introductory courses in basic music theory and harmonic practice, this self-paced, auto-instructional text in two volumes has become a “classic” in the field. Since the students work independently through the programmed format of the text, instructors can concentrate on the more creative aspects of their course. From the wealth of clearly laid-out lessons and exercises, students receive continual feedback and reinforcement as they work through the sequence at their own pace. Also, a set of musical examples on compact discs accompanies the volumes, providing students with aural experience of tonal and harmonic material used in the text. Neither books nor CDs can be ordered alone. See below for ordering code.
