About this title

Synopsis:

Structured to accommodate the three most-prevalent avenues of learning: A) In the classroom: as a text book resource for a three-year course of study when used with the included student practice assignments.

Year 2 - Coverage of core subjects, plus the construction and use of chords up to and including seven-part chords, with accompanying examples and exercises. Year 3 - The study of melodic inharmonics, substitute and chromatic chords, with guidance on how to recognize and use them. A further section focuses on harmonic and melodic analysis of tunes, with exercises and examples.
