Workbook for Piston/Devoto Harmony Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The basic organization of this Workbook is straightforward: each of the fifteen units matches a corresponding chapter in the main text. the unit sections include:

WORDS AND IDEAS to define in your own terms. All relevant information may be found in the corresponding chapter of the main text.

EXERCISES, which are, for the most part, drills requiring a sort of mental calisthenics. You are to do these in a concentrated fashion, striving for accuracy and speed.

Analysis, the section designed to help you develop basic skills that are not discussed at great length in the text. In the first few units, a system is developed by which you learn to record data resulting from your analytical efforts.

COMPOSITION ACTIVITIES, consisting of a special set of activities to introduce you to a new world of creativity. You are called upon to utilize the principles covered in each chapter in a personal, highly individualized way.

SELF TESTS, which are brief summaries of a chapter's contents and are useful for spot-checking information. The answers to the Self Tests be found in Appendix 1.

Synopsis:

This has been designed to accompany Piston's , Fifth Edition, as revised by Mark DeVoto, and to supplement it were necessary.

Synopsis:

This fifth edition of Harmony marks the forty-fifth year of its successful use. The major departure of the fourth edition was the addition of seven new chapters, including four on the complicated subject of harmony after common practice, which had not been discussed in the first three editions.

Synopsis:

The core of the book, however, remains the exhaustive treatment of common-practice harmony, which will still be the basis for most one-year or two-year courses in tonal harmony. In the present edition the entire text has been carefully examined, with a view especially to clarifying the language whenever possible. A few topics of relatively lesser importance have been deleted, and a number of duplicative examples have been trimmed.
