This is something that has been sorely needed! ... an excellent choice for A level and diploma students ... thorough (EPTA Piano Journal)
well laid out both in terms of its design and content ... as a very solid and thorough course in classical harmony this book really delivers (Music Teacher)
An aspect that places this book on a higher level than the traditional harmony textbook is the numerous exercises which are based on models from music literature and which cover a wide variety of textures. (South African Music Teacher)

Overall, a fantastic book that I would recommend to any student or teacher alike. And what a bargain!
I found this book far easier to follow than some of the other more complicated and expensive Harmony
books out there.
It is in a workbook format, so you get lots of exercises, but be warned though, there
are no answers in this book. You have to purchase a separate book for this.
Some other reviewers have moaned about the lack of audio material for the examples.
While this is true, this obviously helps to keep the cost of the book down and the examples are
relatively short so they can easily be typed into notation software, which any modern
composer/musician should be using anyway. So not a problem.
Overall, an effective and easy way to learn about Harmony.
The book is well written, researched and presented and is an absolute must for any music student at A Level and above. It is definitely a useful resource for degree level students.
I will certainly be adding this to my students' reccommended reading list.
I find it interesting to learn or teach harmony through examples and well known songs. I like the way book is written. But of course that's my opinion.
professional and well known piano pedagogue that whilst this text "sheds light" on the neglected subject of Tonal Harmony, this text cannot be compared / rivalled with the texts and amazing ancillary resources the USA has brought forth. In Butterworth's
book, there are no correlating sonic resources provided with the textual information which I feel is SO BAD! The examples quoted for learning are not sufficiently current knowing that there are so many different styles to choose from that will show clear evidence of the specific chord for study at the time, hence the reason why this text is in dire need for a revamp or laying to one side for the usage of more detailed and more current texts available NOW!
I advise all professing teachers to take note from Ralph Turek's wise quotation "If a student is not reachable, then they are not teachable!" His text cites totally up to date musical examples from the Flintstones, Leo Sayer etc as well as Brahms, Beethoven etc.... How can we expect to breed sound musicians when the majority of musicians CANNOT hear internally what is on a score?Read more ›
