Finding The Right Pitch II: A Guide To The Study Of Basic Harmony, listed at worldbetbooks.com and sold here on Gumroad as a PDF, focuses on voice leading, a process that controls the linear succession of tones in each voice (i.e., melodic line), optimizing how each voice moves through time in relation to the rest of the musical texture.
Finding The Right Pitch II covers a range of topics, including the formation and construction of triads within the church mode system; singing, transposing, and identifying the church modes; the different types of six-four chords; cadences; harmonic and contrapuntal progressions; the properties of seventh chords; the formation of seventh chords within the church modes and the major-minor tonal system; using the interval of the 7th to improve voice leading; real and apparent seventh chords; interlocking seventh chords; harmonic and contrapuntal sequences; the two-progression framework; singing seventh chords in all positions from a common bass pitch; the utility of nonharmonic tones for correcting faulty motion between chords; and the application of voice-leading principles and chord progression to the piano keyboard.
Ninety worksheets complete the study of basic harmony. (Worksheets for Chapter 1 are not included in this volume because the first chapter constitutes a synopsis of Finding The Right Pitch: A Guide To The Study Of Music Fundamentals which has its own worksheets.) 344 pages.
