Colour Harmony (Workbook)

Working on similar principles as the other workbooks, this is an ideal introduction to harmonisation and can be used at top Junior level and is also useful in the first year of Secondary school. The use of colour means that the student can immediately see the logic of connecting the harmony to the melody and of course passing notes stand out because they do not belong to the colours of the harmony.
