: Harmonic Practice (): Robert Gauldin: Books

Received first of June with thanks. On first inspection, good quality.

This text is a great source to learn music, I love it. Much much better than what I expected. I quite enjoy professor Gauldin’s harmony text. It was comprehensive and yes, as the publisher’s review states concise.

While in theory pedagogy class I was able to study and dissect over two dozen texts from various regions and time periods. The use of basic Schenker reductions is an excellent idea and one that helps the students realize linear aspects of the music that many past harmony texts either ignore or too briefly discuss. The overall appearance of the book is very similar to many of the current high school texts that students use today.

This is a comfortable approach for students coming into theory for the first time or with little background in the area. Many of the reviews I have read seem to be critical in areas they know little of.

Yes, Gauldin presents the basics scales, chords, etc. Also, many critics have discussed professor Gauldin’s scale building on 5ths. While this is in the text it is not the primary focus on scale construction, merely a footnote p. Overall this is a very good theory text for undergrauates which could and eventually will use some improvements the misprint in the bass of the second mm.

This book gives much insight into many aspects of beginning theory, basic Schenker principles, voice-leading, form the excursions are a great ideaand analysis that many other books in this field often neglect. Like most popular theroy texts, “Harmonic Practice” is excellent for an undergrad program, so long as the students have a teacher with a strong foundation in theory.

I highly recommend this prctice. Benjamin Ayotte benayotte aol. Robert Gauldin’s textbook aims at instilling in the student an awareness of the linear forces that create music.

In his preface, Gauldin states that traditional theory and functional harmonic analysis “tends to neglect the melodic aspects of the music and the way those linear forces shape the harmony. The text is organized into four main sections: Five appendices include acoustics, modes and scales, species counterpoint, Jazz and commercial music, and conducting patterns. The text purposes to introduce harmohic to linear-reductive i. As it is not a text in Schenkerian analysis per gaauldin, and as the more remote structural levels are progressively more difficult to perceive Gauldin does not burden the haemonic with Harmonc more esoteric terminology for larger formal constructs.


Gauldin also provides the student with an introduction to the implication-realization models of Leonard B. The explanations of concepts are lucid and conversational; the analyses are insightful and reveal to the student the fundamental voice leading underlying a given passage.

An important by-product, to be sure, and one that in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries assumes the structural role held by melody in the previous centuries.

Yet it is important to teach music theory from an historical perspective, and Gauldin’s text does just this. He achieves a perfect balance between the vertical and the horizontal dimensions of music.
