of Imitating Selected Commercial Music Style. Master of
Music, August, 1975, 285 pp., 55 illustrations, 24 tables,
bibliography, 45 titles.
The purpose of this study was to develop a guide to
help teach commercial music style imitation, Styles selected
were ragtime, dixieland, Whiteman, Goodman, Miller, bop,
Berry, Presley, Motown, hard rock, horn band, soft rock,
straight ahead big band, Ellington, Basie, country rock,
bluegrass, Country-Western, Mantovani, Boston Pops, and
Love Unlimited Orchestra.
Melody, harmony, rhythm, voicing, instrumentation,
form, special effects, performance techniques, electronic
alteration, and articulation were discussed for each style.
A table summarizing each discussion, and an arrangement
and recording of the same melody in each style were included,
The guide appears successful, judging from commercial
writers' estimations, The work will probably aid writers,
performers, researchers, and publishers. Similar works
could be done on other commercial and ethnic styles.
