"I am of the opinion as a professional and well known piano pedagogue that whilst this text "sheds light" on the neglected subject of Tonal Harmony, this text cannot be compared / rivalled with the texts and amazing ancillary resources the USA has brought forth. In Butterworth's book, there are no correlating sonic resources provided with the textual information which I feel is SO BAD! How can we expect to breed sound musicians when the majority of musicians CANNOT hear internally what is on a score? May I suggest a student who is seeking resources in the study of Tonal Harmony check out the following titles with their ancillary resources and complimentary website tests, you WILL be amazed at the high quality of the resources mentioned below: 1)Tonal Harmony-Kostka and Payne-5th/6th Edition-McGraw Hill 2)The Complete Musician-2nd Edition-Steven Laitz-0UP 3)The Musician's Guide to Theory and Analysis-Clendinning and Marvin- Norton 4)Theory for Today's Musician-Ralph Turek-McGraw Hill 5)Harmony and Voice Leading- 4th International Edition-Aldwell, Schachter and Cadwallader-Cengage, 6)Harmony in Context-Roig Francoli-McGraw Hill
I challenge anyone to get back to me to dispute the Butterworth book is as detailed as the USA resources with their ancillary materials. David Martin LGSM LTCL LLCM ALCM ex examiner LCMM Member of the European Piano Teachers Association UK"
