Book Description

19 Mar 1931
124 short excerpts using a mixture of treble, alto, tenor and bass clefs and various common transpositions. The book concentrates on diatonic harmonic study (including diminished sevenths) and harmonic counterpoint in up to three parts. The exercises train students to take in many staves at once, to see where the principal melody is, to understand harmonies and modulations, to read various clefs, and transpose as necessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent text 5 Nov 2009
By cheario - Published on Amazon.com
After working with this text for a short two weeks my reading of different clefs and notes with many ledger lines has improved drastically. Great to work on with a partner on the piano, or alone, playing both lines or playing one line and singing the other.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful book 4 Oct 2013

This book does exactly what it should do: it teaches you to read all manner of transpositions and clefs. The only reason why I am not giving it five stars is that it's just so unlovable: it's a mental ordeal! That said, I never would have passed my Fellowship exam for the American Guild of Organists without it.
