THEORY ESSENTIALS is a two-volume text that offers a unique, total solution to teaching music theory. Integrating all the components of the two-year music theory sequence, each volume (and its accompanying workbook) fully synthesizes the major topics in music theory with aural skills, keyboard applications, and examples from the literature. Offering terrific value, THEORY ESSENTIALS replaces the need for the four separate texts traditionally required for the music theory sequence (theory, ear training/sight singing, keyboard harmony, and an anthology). The result is a remarkable, carefully-paced synthesis of these components that moves from a solid grounding in Fundamentals through Diatonic Harmony (in Volume I), and from Secondary Function chords through Twentieth-Century Techniques (in Volume II).
