For introductory-level courses in Music Theory. Also suitable for similar classes, such as in secondary schools, where prerequisites are sufficiently understood. This thorough introduction to harmony offers step-by-step development of concepts and skills through explanations, illustrations, musical examples, and drills. Each chapter considers the theory and analysis of music under study. This text focuses on the music of the common practice period, c1600-1900 (e.g., Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert, Brahms). (The second volume, Advanced Harmony, covers twentieth century techniques.)
