This two-volume text covers diatonic, chromatic, and contemporary harmony, as well as voice leading, emphasizing practical performance skills by integrating theoretical principles with aural and keyboard skills through coordinated keyboard, sight-singing, dictation, improvisation, and composition exercises.
The much-anticipated Musician’s Guide
series offers a comprehensive four-semester introduction to the skills of complete musicianship, seamlessly integrating theory and analysis, aural training, and performance in one pedagogical program. The Musician’s Guide
series is divided into two main components, each represented by a core text. While complete enough to be used alone, these dynamic texts are fully coordinated, sharing the same pedagogical approach and structure. Each book relies on a core repertoire of real music that is revisited throughout in a variety of theory- and performance-based contexts. These texts are complemented by a rich collection of learning resources.
