Présentation de l'éditeur
Designed specifically for greater flexibility of use, the two workbooks that accompany The Complete Musician: An Integrated Approach to Tonal Theory, Analysis, and Listening, Third Edition, feature a new organization. Workbook 1: Writing and Analysis is dedicated exclusively to written and analytical activities. Workbook 2: Skills and Musicianship focuses on musicianship skills. Between the two workbooks--each of which is packaged with a CD--there are more than 2,000 recorded analytical and dictation examples and fifteen hours of recorded music (all music is performed, recorded, and engineered at Eastman). Additional supplementary material is available on the new companion website (www.oup.com/us/laitz). Features of Workbook 1: Writing and Analysis * Accompanied by a CD (packaged FREE with workbook) containing high-quality MP3 recordings of nearly all the music in the workbook (performances range from solo piano to full orchestra) * Presents a variety of written and analytical activities including figured bass, melody harmonization, model composition, and analysis * Includes more-focused and shorter assignments (each chapter is organized into discrete assignments, usually four assignments per chapter) * Contains carefully graduated exercises, ranging from basic, introductory tasks, to more active writing exercises, and finally to creative compositional projects
