Harmony is the art of writing successive chords for voices or instruments in such a way that the music produced is acceptable to the ear. In Horwood's The Basis of Harmony, you will get a comprehensive look at the theory of Western Harmony. This book emphasizes the importance of learning how to "hear with your eyes," and helps you attain the skills to do just that. Through lessons on triads, figured bass, cadences, modulations, suspensions, and much more, the reader is sure to gain a greater understanding of basic music theory. This book is a must for a beginning composer or someone who just wants to learn more about the intellectual side of music.
