I’m going to be teaching AP Music Theory (hopefully) next school year and need advice on textbooks. I’ve taught the class before using Kostka and Payne “Tonal Harmony” but definitely want to try something else this year. I’ve been to the AP Website to look at qualifying texts, anyone out there have strong feelings about certain texts that you’ve taught before?
Steinke’s “Harmonic Materials in Tonal Music” was great – my students enjoyed simply digging in and learning through doing instead of reading about it.
