Graphic Music Analysis presents Schenkerian analysis in a practical and engaging manner that will resonate with musicology, theory, and composition students, as well as performing musicians. With over 650 musical examples, Eric Wen guides students through the step-by-step process of creating graphic representations of music and reveals how Schenkerian ideas evolve out of analytical issues in the works encountered. Rather than promoting an analytic method for its own sake, Wen derives structural techniques from their particular musical situations to help students engage directly with the music.
