More about this title

Harmony in Practice

Harmony in Practice explores the main elements of tonal harmony. Students using this book will acquire a secure knowledge of the basics of harmonic practice.

Singing, playing and completing the exercises, and studying the music examples, will provide essential experience of the ‘tools of the trade’.
More than 280 music examples illustrate the author’s clear and direct exposition of the history and practice of harmony while the student will be able to work through over 180 exercises.

The practical workbook format will enable students to prepare for a variety of musical examinations - for the Associated Board’s Grade 6 to Grade 8 Theory examinations; for A Level Music and Diploma examinations; for university and college entrance papers.
It will serve in particular as a vital aid in bridging the gap between Grade 5 and Grade 6 Theory.

A thorough pursuit of this workbook will also bring a greater understanding to bear on students’ music-making, and will enhance their awareness of style and their appreciation of other musicians’ performances.
