Grade Six Music Theory Book Description:

Grade Six Music Theory for ABRSM Candidates A complete course for students taking the ABRSM Grade 6 music theory exam. This book takes you through each topic with a step-by-step approach. The topic in each unit is explained in simple terms with several musical examples, and is then followed by a page of consolidation exercises so that you can immediately practice your new-found knowledge. Model answers are provided. The course covers the ABRSM syllabus for Grade Six, which is a high intermediate level. The course is broken down into three sections, which mirror the way the exam paper is organised - harmony, composition and score-based analysis questions. In the harmony section, you will learn how chords are constructed, about their inversions and the way they are commonly put into progressions and cadences. You will learn how to harmonise a simple melody, by choosing chords that both sound good, and also agree with the "rules" of harmony set down in the classical era. Also in this section, you will learn how to read "figured bass", which is a short-hand system for notating chords. You will be able to produce a piece of 4-part harmony from a single figured bass line, and also learn how to create a figured bass line which will fit a given melody. You will learn how the figured bass system works, how to answer the exam questions, with plenty of tips to help you remember as you go along. In the composition section of the course, you will find out exactly what the examiner is expecting of you, in order to gain top marks for your composition. You will learn how to structure a melody, how to use the ideas from the provided given opening to create the rest of the piece, and how to write performance directions which are meaningful and musical. You will also learn about changing key (modulation) and the most effective way to do this. The last section of the course is general knowledge - you will learn how to answer a range of questions based on a score for either an chamber work, or an orchestral piece. You'll learn about how ensemble scores are organised, which instruments transpose and how, as well as a myriad of other skills such as intervals, writing out ornaments, or analysing harmony. Perfect for self-study, or to use with your music teacher. Ample musical illustrations and exercises are included, with model answers provided. Each page has been carefully designed to be suitable for photocopying. This book is "bilingual", and contains both UK and USA musical terminology.

Guidelines for College Teaching of Music Theory Book Description:

John D. White's comprehensive approach to music education is updated here in the second edition of Guidelines for College Teaching of Music Theory. The text demonstrates presentation styles for developing aural, keyboard, and writing skills as well as examining the theoretical and pedagogical conventions of musical education. Twenty years after the publication of the first edition, this revised second edition responds to the new trends in pedagogical study, highlights the transcendence of the canon by international music styles and popular music, and takes a fresh look at the current state of American academia. Features an additional chapter by William E. Lake on the benefits of technology in the classroom.
