An exploration of musical harmony from its ancient fundamentals to its most complex modern progressions, addressing how and why it resonates emotionally and spiritually in the individual. W. A. Mathieu, an accomplished author and recording artist, presents a way of learning music that reconnects modern-day musicians with the source from which music was originally generated. As the author states, "The rules of music--including counterpoint and harmony--were not formed in our brains but in the resonance chambers of our bodies." His theory of music reconciles the ancient harmonic system of just intonation with the modern system of twelve-tone temperament. Saying that the way we think music is far from the way we do music, Mathieu explains why certain combinations of sounds are experienced by the listener as harmonious. His prose often resembles the rhythms and cadences of music itself, and his many musical examples allow readers to discover their own musical responses.

For courses in Music Theory (a two-year sequence including sight singing and ear training) as well as separate Sight Singing courses. Using an abundance of meticulously organized melodies drawn from the literature of composed music and a wide range of the world's folk music, Ottman provides the most engaging and comprehensive Sight Singing text on the market. Over fifty years ago, Robert W. Ottman set out to write a book that draws examples from the literature as opposed to being composed by the author. He proposed that students should work with "real" music as they study musical forms. The result was Music for Sight Singing. Not only is real music more enjoyable and interesting to sing than dry examples, but genuine repertoire naturally introduces a host of important musical considerations beyond pitch and rhythm (including dynamics, accents, articulations, slurs, repeat signs, and tempo markings). Several generations of teachers have also agreed that Ottman's ability to order his examples from the simple to the complex is another key to the book's long term success. Nancy Rogers, the book's new author, has added new vitality to the book, introducing exercises to develop creativity as well as to build basic skills.
