Schenker Guide: A Brief Handbook and Website for Schenkerian Analysis introduces students of music theory and composition to the fundamental concepts and methods of this system of musical analysis. For many students, understanding and using this system is a daunting task; not only does the theory present its own special language, it involves learning specific skills, from how to make analytical charts to outlining a composition. This book offers the first clear and simple way to learn this technique. Although aimed at the beginning student, this book does more than just introduce the basics. It takes the student step-by-step from making a basic Schenkerian graph through the more difficult aspects of advanced work. For this reason, it could serve both as a text to be used as part of a broader course on theory as well as for more advanced seminars on Schenkerian technique alone. In short, Schenkerian Analysis: A Basic Introduction sets a new standard for a comprehensive, understandable introduction to this important theory.
