Following the huge success of A Students Guide to Harmony and Counterpoint, Hugh Benhams latest book provides an in-depth study of the harmony requirements for Edexcel AS Music plus longer examples of four-part writing for AQA and OCR AS Music.
Students will revise the basics of keys, intervals, triads and 7th chords. Guidance is given on how chords are strung together to make musical sense and how to deal with part-writing and non-chord notes. They will be introduced to counterpoint, how to analyse harmonies written by somebody else and how to complete a single phrase in four-part harmony.
Each chapter includes activities to help students understand the topics and prepare for the exams.
