SchenkerGUIDE : A Brief Handbook and Website for Schenkerian Analysis Hardback



SchenkerGUIDE is an accessible overview of Heinrich Schenker's complex but fascinating approach to the analysis of tonal music.

The book has emerged out of the widely used website,, which has been offering straightforward explanations of Schenkerian analysis to undergraduate students since 2001. Divided into four parts, SchenkerGUIDE offers a step-by-step method to tackling this often difficult system of analysis.

Part I is an introduction to Schenkerian analysis, outlining the concepts that are involved in analysisPart II outlines a unique and detailed working method to help students to get started on the process of analysisPart III puts some of these ideas into practice by exploring the basics of a Schenkerian approach to form, register, motives and dramatic structurePart IV provides a series of exercises from the simple to the more sophisticated, along with hints and tips for their completion.
