The Dolmetsch online music theory & history pages - short introductions to the whole of the how and why of Western music, with enough links to fill in any gaps. Amazingly good, although as yet incomplete. via haddock

This is an unexpectedly good reference to have online. In particular, the "Practical Guide to Composition" section presents a clear, to-the-point explanation of how to approach structuring music (and not just for "classical Western composition" - however you define that).

Thanks thatwhichfalls - great find!

I was surprised this hasn't been linked yet. As a complement (and supplement), the links in my earlier post might be helpful as well.

It also answers a question posed by Phatty Lumpkin. This is a great find.

its a little humorous that the phrase "avant garde" has become a systematic style taught at music schools
