Upcoming (some day!) Intonation Exercises: Four Part Chorales In Just Intonation book by yours truly

I’ve had the opportunity to work on this little pet project of mine lately, and I think it would be nice to put up a “teaser” showing a glimpse of the materials to be contained within:

Intonation Exercises Preview

The idea is to help train proper intonation by precisely notating every deviation in pitch through the course of these chorales, and breaking things down to easily digestible building blocks of these intonation tools. Note that this is just a couple of pages picked from different sections of the book; I hope that some of you find these useful enough to generate interest in the (not yet) finished product. The first chorale in this excerpt is very straight-forward; the second is obviously more advanced. The chorales in this book will consist of exercises like these, and of arrangements of traditional and original songs which reinforce the exercises. I also want them to eventually cover advanced harmony through complex jazz chords and beyond, dealing with harmonies based on higher harmonics. I’ll probably release it as a couple of volumes.
