Reinhard Amon knows how to arouse the desire and motivation for a topic that is often feared: Functional harmony theory. Due to his impressive professional competence in combination with his decades of experience in teaching and the transfer of his knowledge, he has been able to edit a comprehensive compendium that serves beginners as a textbook and exercise book, and connoisseurs as a manual or reference book.
Using 120 sheet music examples from different epochs of music history, he illustrates theoretical aspects, explains basic principles and structures in a comprehensible way and finally builds up a deep understanding of the practical handling of functional theory and analysis piece by piece. With his book, Amon succeeds in understanding and interpreting the complexity of the topic in a constructive way. Accustomed to reacting to the problems of his students and finding solutions, he has thus succeeded in producing a practical work that contains instructions, tips and even little tricks that provide a solid and promising overview of the essential contents.
Understanding music and utilising this while making music provides even more joy and security, for a more conscious immersion in the composition and a natural approach to the moment of its creation.
