Expanding the Music Theory Canon

Auralia® & Musition® are excited to be partnering with Dr. Paula Maust (Author, Peabody Institute) and SUNY Press to provide worksheets to accompany Paula's book 'Expanding the Music Theory Canon'.

Dr. Maust’s work aims to present the works of underrepresented composers of Western classical music who were active from c.1600–1900.  Musition now includes 9 worksheets that align with the anthology - dominant 7ths, predominants, 64 progressions, secondary dominants, secondary leading tone chords, augmented 6ths, Neapolitan chords, modal mixture and diatonic modulation.

The featured composers include Hortense de Beauharnais, Harriet Browne, Joseph Bologne, Marianna Martines, Sophia Dussek, Isabella Colbran, Chiquinha Gonzaga, José White, Robert Nathaniel Dett and many more.
