Part-Writing Resources

The following webpage is intended to supplement my article, “Chorales in J. S. Bach’s Pedagogy: A Method for Teaching Undergraduate Music Theory Inspired by a New Source.” I presented this paper at Pedagogy into Practice (Lee University, 2017), where it won the Best Student Paper Award. The article is forthcoming in the The Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy. In the meantime you can view a draft of the examples here.

I welcome your comments and suggestions. Please feel free to contact me!

Each audio recording begins with an arpeggiation of the first chord of the harmonization. This way students can practice singing at home.
