Reviews

"There is no other textbook in modal counterpoint quite like it. Schubert's innovative division of rules into "hard" (rules never to be violated) and "soft" (rules that may be violated if the occasion demands) has proven very useful in the classroom, and his warm-up exercises for each species are quite helpful. This certainly ranks among the best music theory textbooks of the past ten years."--Anton Vishio, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human
Development, New York University
"This is one of the most successful textbooks in any area of music I have used in sixteen years of university teaching. It is also remarkably well edited. Its format is both instructor- and student-friendly. This is a book of inspired musicality, pragmatic pedagogy, scholarship, and wit."--Jeff Perry, Louisiana State University
