Q: Hi Jon, Concerning composition / harmony, what books do you recommend?
A: There are many good books on the market for this subject. Depending on what type of music you want to compose, the book "Harmony And Composition: Basics to Intermediate" by Deborah Jamini, is a good overall book to start with. There are also classic books on the subject that most study in music schools, which are "Principles of orchestration" by Nikoly Rimsky-Korsakov, and "Theory of Harmony" by Arnold Schoenberg. The last two books are old but still apply to the basic sounds you hear on movies and TV. Hope this helps. Good luck and keep writing! Jon Ware
