Last night I was digging through my years-old Piston—the renowned textbook on [ Harmony ]—when realized how rusty my understanding of the material have gotten.
I need to brush up my skills, and that means studying the book once again. But here's the thing: Although this is an excellent and thorough textbook, it's also incredibly dry. (I know this from my first experience with the book.) A good teacher or discussion mate is essential to fully benefit from this book, which means:
I am looking for a studymate for this textbook and perhaps Schoenberg's Theory of Harmony too, which is a philosophical textbook/essay on the history of western harmony, explaining why things are done in the way they are, as opposed to Piston's approach—how things are done.
