Excerpt from First Year Harmony First Year Harmony is a series of Lessons in Tone, by the practice of which students and amateurs may become acquainted with the more usual Harmonic and Melodic progressions, and the laws underlying them. The aim of the author is not merely to explain these progressions but to present means by the practice of which the student may become thoroughly familiar with them. This familiarity must result from several activities. The student must hear, think, and record Tone, as he hears, thinks, and records words in his study of language. And to these processes there must be added one other - the one for which the others primarily exist - namely, creation or self-expression in Tone. When these activities are thoroughly established music has become a matter of reality, it is no longer intangible and elusive. It is based on law and its law is common to all arts. There are many treatises on Harmony in existence. Any earnest student who will actually perform the tasks they assign will ultimately master the subject as far as they present it. The reason this mastery is not gained is less the fault of the book than it is the fault of the student himself. Merely to write exercises in Harmony will not give the student much insight into either the laws or the beauty of Tone-combinations.
