Description

This concise handbook offers comprehensive coverage of main topics in music theory. Instructors can elaborate on the material as appropriate to their course, while students can learn and review technical information without having to digest lengthy analyses and explanations. Unbiased and flexible, this book can be used as a primary or reference text. Topics include species and tonal counterpoint, instrumental ranges and transpositions, and a glossary of forms. Each major section ends with suggestions for analysis and further reading.
