Mr Griffin does a superb job giving clear and concise steps that students take when approaching harmony. The book is set out clearly and is easy to understand. Mr Griffin is obviously a gifted teacher, and has developed a great resource for any music teacher or student interested in theory of harmony. Natalie Wickham, Music Matters USA

An excellent resource which will save teachers hours of prep. There are numerous examples to work through. This could become an essential part of KS5 harmony work which goes beyond common chords and progressions. The presentation is very clear and well thought out. UK music teacher
