The text links each of the tasks that comprise a tonal theory curriculum, explicitly connecting written theory (writing and analysis), skills (singing, playing, and dictation), and music-making outside the theory class. This edition is revised with beginning students in mind and contains more basic exercises as well as solutions to selected exercises in the text. It is streamlined and reorganized with fewer chapters. The text presents the most commonly taught topics in sequence and moves less-common topics--such as invertible counterpoint, compound melody, and motive--to the appendices, where instructors may access them as their individual curriculum permits, or omit them altogether. This edition contains numerous musical examples include guiding notations, with textural and structural reductions of more complex examples."@en ;
