I've always liked Thompson, too. But I also like Leila Fletcher and Michael Aaron. These 3 were the books I learned with and the ones I prefer to use with my students. I to heavy on Fletcher in the bginning. HATE Alfred!You might check out Fletcher Theory papers. They're my favorite. http://www.amazon.com/Music-Sales-America-Fletcher-Theory/dp/B003AFTIZA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352691075&sr=8-1&keywords=fletcher+theory+papers+book+1 Of course, you can go to The Book Table to look at them in person. -Sasha
Thanks for adding your two cents, Sasha! I'll definitely check Fletcher out when I get the chance. :)When I mentioned this post on facebook, there was also some positive mention of "Simply Music", which is a different approach altogether, based on ear training first.
