"The Complete Musician offers a depth of theoretical training and analytical insight that its competitors do not. It has, by far, the best musical examples of any textbook available on the market today. The exercises, which incrementally progress from easier to harder, are highly original and just plain fun to do."--Reginald Bain, University of South Carolina"The integration of composition, analysis, aural recognition, and performance is the best feature of The Complete Musician. It subtly reinforces the idea that a musician needs an understanding of each aspect of the musical universe in order to excel in any of its specialized areas. The CompleteMusician trains music students to think like composers, which cannot help but make them better performers."--Ciro Scotto, University of South Florida"The most comprehensive, musically intelligent, and easy-to-use music theory textbook on the market."--Stefan Eckert, University of Northern Colorado"This title ranks among the very best of its kind. . . . If you want a thorough and approachable book that gets behind, or into the head (indeed, heart and soul) of composers whose music you've known; want to know how it works the way it does, and why; want to see the mechanics, an appreciation of which serves only to enhance your sense of admiration for their technique, then The Complete Musician can be recommended wholeheartedly."--Review from Classical.netVom Verlag:
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
