The text begins with an overview of music fundamentals; the middle addresses the use of harmony in common practice; and the concluding section offers a basic glimpse of the harmonic practices of the 20th century.

Excerpt from The Theory and Practice of Tone-Relations: An Elementary Course of Harmony With Emphasis Upon the Element of Melody Musical composition, in its creative aspect, can not be taught. It is a. Distinctly subjective expression of the individual; it comes from within, not from without; its individuality is what gives it value. But there is a necessary medium, a technic of expression, and this technic can be taught, and must inevitably be acquired. He who would write English poetry must first learn the grammar, and other elements, Of English expres sion. NO matter how great the genius, or how overwhelming his thought and emotion, he can no more dispense with technic than he could dispense with a tongue in speech. A textbook Of harmony, and Of the elementary technic Of musical expres sion, is, therefore, a necessary and important thing for him who desires to understand what great musical minds have recorded, and who purposes to ex press himself in the language Of tone.
