Received first of June with thanks. On first inspection, good quality. I quite enjoy professor Gauldin's harmony text. It was comprehensive and yes, as the publisher's review states concise.

While in theory pedagogy class I was able to study and dissect over two dozen texts from various regions and time periods. The use of basic Schenker reductions is an excellent idea and one that helps the students realize linear aspects of the music that many past harmony texts either ignore or too briefly discuss.

The overall appearance of the book is very similar to many of the current high school texts that students use today. This is a comfortable approach for students coming into theory for the first time or with little background in the area. Many of the reviews I have read seem to be critical in areas they know little of.

Yes, Gauldin presents the basics scales, chords, etc. Also, many critics have discussed professor Gauldin's scale building on 5ths. While this is in the text it is not the primary focus on scale construction, merely a footnote p. Overall this is a very good theory text for undergrauates which could and eventually will use some improvements the misprint in the bass of the second mm.

This book gives much insight into many aspects of beginning theory, basic Schenker principles, voice-leading, form the excursions are a great idea , and analysis that many other books in this field often neglect.

Like most popular theroy texts, "Harmonic Practice" is excellent for an undergrad program, so long as the students have a teacher with a strong foundation in theory. I highly recommend this text.

Benjamin Ayotte benayotte aol. Robert Gauldin's textbook aims at instilling in the student an awareness of the linear forces that create music. In his preface, Gauldin states that traditional theory and functional harmonic analysis "tends to neglect the melodic aspects of the music and the way those linear forces shape the harmony. Five appendices include acoustics, modes and scales, species counterpoint, Jazz and commercial music, and conducting patterns.

The text purposes to introduce students to linear-reductive i. As it is not a text in Schenkerian analysis per se, and as the more remote structural levels are progressively more difficult to perceive Gauldin does not burden the students with Schenker's more esoteric terminology for larger formal constructs.

Gauldin also provides the student with an introduction to the implication-realization models of Leonard B. The explanations of concepts are lucid and conversational; the analyses are insightful and reveal to the student the fundamental voice leading underlying a given passage. An important by-product, to be sure, and one that in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries assumes the structural role held by melody in the previous centuries. Yet it is important to teach music theory from an historical perspective, and Gauldin's text does just this.

He achieves a perfect balance between the vertical and the horizontal dimensions of music. When I first bought this book, I flipped through the pages and thought, "ALright! Chief among its flaws are what I see as a classic case of "textbook multiple personality disorder. The book is ok for learning the facts and how to go through the motions.

Not very insightful or stimulating. Rather dry and unexciting. Still, it is possible to learn from it, and it is quite logical although like i said the examples I found often worthless. Still, if you are brand new to music theory, I would recommend a lower level text or workbook which supplies plenty of more basic excercises before getting to the harder ones.

ANd if you already have had music theory, i dont think this book has much to offer except as a reference. See all reviews from the United States. Customers who bought this item also bought.
