Simply the best composition/analysis book I've ever found. Instead of recapitulating the development of tonal harmony in the guise of pedagogy, they start with the Schenkerian basic relationship of the dominant to the tonic and spiral outward in ever increasing complex relationships. The CD set sold separately is a requirement. I never bought the workbook as this was for independent study.
This book is a step up from the kaftka book titled Tonal Harmony. I recomend this to the musician who is already farmiliar with music thoery. It is unnecessarily verbose and complex. Should one know the terms well enough he or she could easily find mistakes in this edition.
