The Elements of Music: Concepts and Applications: v. 2 by Ralph Turek
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"The Elements of Music, Concepts and Applications, Volume 1", is part of a comprehensive learning program for 2-year music theory courses. The text is distinguished by an attention to detail that makes learning - and teaching - easier. Abundant musical examples throughout the text immediately reinforce theoretical concepts, giving students a command of essential compositional and analytical skills, including a strong grounding in four-part writing and an understanding of musical style through comprehensive analysis. Built-in pedagogical aids assist the student, while the extensive Instructor's Manual saves time for the teacher. The second edition includes a greater emphasis on comprehensive analysis along with more thorough coverage of 4-part voice leading, harmony, large scale melodic and harmonic relationships, and 20th Century music. "The Elements of Music" works particularly well with "The Analytical Anthology of Music" (0070654565), also by Turek. Also available for separate purchase are a companion student workbook (007065493X), audio CD (0070655251) and "Elements of Music, Concepts and Applications, Volume 1 (0070654743).
