Hi I am an intermediate learner I know quite well music theory Harmony, composition etc.. But there is always more to be learned. I want to study more about harmony,composition or what ever:-) I thought this could be a good post where information of which books are recommended can be gathered. Thanks a lot.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Hi there. Unfortunately, while it is probably good to have recommendations on reading material, Stack Exchange doesn't work this way - there is no single answer; it will vary over time; and is very opinion based. So we don't tend to accept questions like this. – Doktor Mayhem Nov 30 '17 at 12:17

There is Andy Laverne's Handbook of Chord Substitutions: very useful if you want to reharmonize a tune or just harmonize one of your own. Lots of examples. There's also a huge book in French (I don't know if it's ever been translated into English though) by teacher and musician Jacques Siron. It's called La Partition Intérieure. Siron has taught improvisers for many years. The real drawback of that book is its lack of examples.

  • Thanks actually i need something more advanced...but its Andt's book is a great source also! – LoveIsHere Nov 30 '17 at 8:53
