  • 2011-02-19 00:00:00.0 Terrible book - Very confusing approach

    Currently trying to muddle my way through this book and am ready to give up and try another book. Rules are given in point form and offer no explanation as to why the rule is to be followed. Some of the examples also appear to not follow the rules that...

    are given. Avoid this book if you can. Wish someone could tell me what other text offers similar content but is easy to follow and understand....

  • 2006-02-13 00:00:00.0 Step-by-step guide to part writing

    While a little dull, this book is an excellent introduction to writing in four part harmony for a high school student not ready for a college harmony textbook. I haven't seen another harmony textbook that moves at as slow a pace as this book, and every new concept has...

    ample number (almost too many) exercises. With the rules presented so clearly, the student simple cannot go wrong.

  • 2005-08-24 00:00:00.0 Terrible Shell of a Book

    This book is written ENTIRELY in point form, with ONE example of almost the pertinent concepts shown in music notation, explained by ONE bullet of information. The book has little organization and even less clarity. If you don't know harmony, this book will only confuse you more; if you...

    do, then you don't need it. The book essentially tells you "doing this is good" or "doing this is unacceptable" for a number of arbitrary scenarios, and doesn't even attempt to tie concepts together. Mosrtly, it contains simple exercises where you must analyze popular classical music. TO BE AVOIDED.
