William Russo: Composing music
|Publisher||University Of Chicago Press|
Aimed at those who have some knowledge of music but not formal training in composition, this concise introduction to composing starts right in with a brief composition exercise, then proceeds step by step through a series of increasingly complex and challenging problems, gradually expanding the student's musical grammar.
"This is a wonderful book for anyone who is developing improvising skills or who would like a fun way to explore music."Jim Stockford, Co-Evolution Quarterly(ISBN 9780226732169)
