The Complete Musician 5th Edition: An Integrated Approach to Theory, Analysis, and Listening (Paperback)
With a focus on music in context and a wealth of in-text and online exercises, The Complete Musician offers a complete program for teaching and learning undergraduate music theory. Rather than rote learning of concepts and memorizing terms, the text asks students to explore the ways in which theory informs and responds to the work of performers and composers, underscoring its relevance to students' wider musical lives. New to this edition, an Enhanced e-Book that gives students instant feedback as they learn, and assignable, online warm-up exercises help students develop skills before they put pencil to paper.
