SYMBOLS USED IN MUSIC ANALYSIS.
JONES, GEORGE T.
A RECOMMENDED STANDARDIZED SYMBOLIZATION RESULTED FROM A DETAILED COMPARATIVE STUDY OF ANALYTICAL SYMBOLIZATION AND TERMINOLOGY FOUND IN MUSIC THEORY AND HARMONY TEXTBOOKS WHICH WERE IN GENERAL USE IN THE UNITED STATES. OVER 200 MEMBER SCHOOLS OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOLS OF MUSIC PROVIDED DATA ON MATERIALS. ABSTRACTS SHOWING SYMBOLIZATION WERE PREPARED FOR EACH OF MORE THAN 40 TEXTBOOKS. WHERE A CONSENSUS INDICATED A PREFERRED SYMBOLIZATION, THIS WAS THE ONE USUALLY RECOMMENDED. IN OTHER CASES, ALTERNATIVE SYMBOLIZATIONS WERE CONSIDERED AND THE ONE RECOMMENDED WAS THE CLEAREST, LEAST AMBIGUOUS SYMBOL WHICH STILL CONVEYED ACCURATELY WHAT HAD TO BE EXPRESSED. RECOMMENDATIONS COVERED THE FIGURED BASS, CHORD SYMBOLS, NONHARMONIC TONES, AND THE CHORD SYMBOLS IN POPULAR MUSIC. (JM)
