KENT KENNAN COUNTERPOINT PDF

While a limited understanding of contrapuntal elements may be gained through analysis alone, these elements are grasped in a more intimate way through the actual writing of contrapuntal examples. Also, by linking the study of counterpoint to music of a specific period, the text provides a clear model for students to emulate and a definite basis for the criticism of student work. If you already have a year or two of music theory you know about modulations, sonata forms, and basic part-writing you can,literally, just start working from this book with Bach as a companion text and start teaching yourself how to write fugues. Still the best basic counterpoint text By James E. Mcvoy on Mar 08, Having taught counterpoint for about twenty years, I can honestly say this is still the best textbook available on the subject.
