Survey and Results: Most-Used Theory Texts in U.S. Colleges and Universities.
Killam, Rosemary; And Others
The task of choosing the right text(s) for an undergraduate music theory program is difficult, at best. Sixty-seven U.S. institutions of higher learning offering graduate degrees in music theory were surveyed to determine what undergraduate textbooks were used, how long they have been used, and how satisfied the schools were with the texts. The most-used texts of the participating institutions are identified in the following categories: analysis, ear training, part writing, sight singing, and keyboard harmonization. The findings bring insight to the difficult process of theory text selection. Such surveys should be conducted regularly to provide new and significant information in the area of theory pedagogy.
