The volumes in the Mapping Tonal Harmony collection have been envisioned as auxiliary material in the study of Tonal Harmony. The main objective of these books is to provide the student, teachers, composers and/or songwriters with a tool that will aid them in hearing, analyzing, foreseeing, and composing harmonic progressions without struggle, in all keys alike.

MTH 5.1: These workbooks are based on the map used in the Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro app by mDecks Music, which is recommended as accompanying material/tool for all volumes
