About the Product

The best collection of musical examples for any theory class

Drawing on Timothy Cutler’s extensive pedagogical experience, this anthology provides ideal examples for any theory class. Consisting of excerpts organized by topic, the anthology is designed to support any theory text and contains the perfect examples to illustrate every theoretical concept. The Anthology of Music for Analysis is part of Norton’s suite of resources for the theory curriculum and offers students substantial savings when packaged with a Norton theory text.


  • A CONVENIENT AND AFFORDABLE RESOURCE FOR ANY THEORY COURSE Cutler’s anthology supplies the perfect example to illustrate any musical concept, so finding examples ahead of—or even during—class is easier than ever. With a Spotify playlist, recordings are freely available. Although the anthology is designed to work with any theory textbook, it is part of Norton’s suite of theory resources. With the Anthology of Music for Analysis and a Norton theory textbook, students can purchase all the materials they need for the entire theory sequence for less than $200.

  • ALL THE EXAMPLES FOR THE THEORY SEQUENCE IN ONE COLLECTION This collection features hundreds of musical examples, organized by theoretical topic, from fundamentals through post-tonal theory. Examples range in length from single phrases to entire movements, giving students the musical context they need to analyze concepts from harmonic progressions to form.

  • ORGANIZATION THAT REINFORCES THEORETICAL CONCEPTS Chapters are devoted to topics from scales to serialism. A summary at the beginning of each chapter concisely reviews theoretical concepts using language that is compatible with a variety of theoretical perspectives. Provocative questions scattered throughout the volume help steer class discussion and assignments. Each chapter begins with simple examples—ideal for introducing concepts—and progresses to complex examples.
