Music Theory and Composition : A Practical Approach, Paperback / softback Book

Music Theory and Composition : A Practical Approach Paperback / softback


This text presents a pragmatic, accessible approach to music theory through an emphasis on melody and counterpoint.

Starting with a single melodic line and gradually adding voices in counterpoint, the book drills part-writing while also explaining functionality, first with scale degrees and then with harmony.

Workbook sections follow each chapter.
