Publisher Comments:

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 2 (0070654751).

Synopsis:

The Elements of Music is a two-volume text with companion workbooks and a companion CD for 2-year music theory courses that take a comprehensive approach. The text is distinguished by an attention to detail that makes learning (and teaching) easier; it is example intensive, immediately reinforcing theoretical concepts with musical selections.

In addition, The Elements of Music gives students a command of essential compositional and analytical skills — including a strong grounding in four-part writing — and an understanding of musical style though 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, also by Turek.
