Michael rated it really liked it Jan 12, The first three Units of the book are designed to be taught sequentially, but instructors have the flexibility to teach the latter units in any combination and order they choose.
Joseph Pisano rated it liked it Aug 09, David Julian rated it liked it Mar 06, Instead of recapitulating the development of tonal harmony in the guise of pedagogy, they start with the Schenkerian basic relationship of the dominant to the tonic and spiral outward in ever increasing complex relationships.
Reference forward and backward “…As we saw in Unit 2, Section 5…” are helpful. It’s not a book for drilling inversions or fingering Major sevenths on hramony guitar. If you are looking for a single volume, that’s unpretentious and comprehensive, extremely well written and likely to accord with your understanding of the importance of harmony in musical history, this one can be recommended wholeheartedly.
The companion website has both streaming and downloadable mp3 files of all the musical example in the text, a variety of exercises and an electronic version of the student workbook. It is unnecessarily verbose and complex. First the authors explain and illustrate the smallest components of Modes and Keys; eventually they look at modulation and the likes of chromatic neighbors. Bob rated it it was ok Jul 15, Ben rated it really liked it Jul 25, In fact the topics are so well divided that you can almost dip in and out.
There are plenty of exercises on the accompanying website, and footnotes etc where additional explanation or vocie would be obtrusive ans the body of the schahter. The style of exposition clear and yet personal. Home News Contacts Copyright.

David rated it liked it Jan 15, Very little is voiec and taught that doesn’t originate in music of the giants of the period… musical examples abound, two, three, four, sometimes more to every page, or well over Harmony and Voice Leading by Edward Aldwell.

Classical Net Review – Aldwell/Schachter/Cadwallader – Harmony & Voice Leading
At each step, extracts from the works of familiar and some not so voiec composers vooce, re-inforce but usually illuminate the relevant theory very well. In almost three dozen chapters, of between a dozen and two dozen pages each, a very broad range of topics pertaining to how music is constructed is covered. Shaoliang Hua rated it did not like it Feb 06, Thanks for telling us about the problem.

It deals extensively and exhaustively with the basic musical theory necessary to understand harmony; more advanced topics are then covered, such as dissonance and chromaticism as part of a wider discussion of voice-leading. Certainly isolate a specific area and work on it. One of the book’s great strengths is its coverage of tonal structures in music such that we become more aware of how compositions work as they do across broader time and xdwell spans… not just the minutiae of closely related chords harmonny notes.
It’s pleasingly evident that the material and the way its parts interrelate were in the forefront of the authors’ minds when they conceived of this book; and not merely a way to anc a “course” that would fit a homogenous college syllabus.
