Written as a music theory text that not only addresses the important fundamental syntax of music in the classical sense but also relates this syntax to current practices and styles, this book should be particularly well-suited to musicians focusing on aspects of the music business and of popular culture.
Richard Sorce was a faculty member in the Department of Music and Performing Arts at New York University's Steinhardt School of Education.
