Book Description

Hearing Form: Musical Analysis With and Without the Score is a complete course package for undergraduate courses on musical forms, with comprehensive coverage from the Baroque to the Romantic. Placing emphasis on listening, it teaches students to analyze music both with and without the use of a score, covering phrase endings and cadences, harmonic sequence types, modulations, formal sections, and musical forms.

Hearing Form is supported by a workbook, its own full-score anthology, and a companion website containing an instructor’s manual, test bank, audio streaming of recordings for the pieces in the anthology, and downloadable sound files.

The second edition has been updated to include:

  • Additional score-based exercises
  • More music of the Romantic era and more vocal music
  • New scores included in the Anthology, with twice as many composers represented

With an engaging and practical approach informed by recent scholarship, Hearing Form enables students to recognize musical elements both by sight and by ear.

Please note: This set contains both the Hearing Form textbook and the accompanying anthology.
