Designed to meet the needs of the two-semester theory curriculum for music majors, Tonal Harmony is a straightforward book that emphasizes practicality and ease-of-use for both the student and the professor.
By focusing on the core elements of the theory curriculum in a single-volume format, the text is both a complete coursebook and a handy and cost-saving manual for students. On the professor's side, the supplements package (with a collection of CD audio examples and an extensive Instructor's Manual) makes the book easy to use and to teach.
