"GRAND UNIFICATION THEORY OF HARMONY"

THEORY OF HARMONY AND TEACHING METHOD

 

1979–Present:  I have, for the past thirty years, developed a grand unification theory of harmony that covers all aspects of voice-leading, modulation, transitioning, diatonic and chromatic tonal harmony, pan-diatonic and atonal harmony, and creation of new harmonic systems.  Students of this method learn to segue seamlessly from one musical event to another. I am compiling a text on this method.  I have also developed methods of teaching free improvisation in two and more parts based on certain structural features of tonal and species counterpoint.
